Drought aid still critically needed

The drought conditions in some parts of South Africa are still having a severe impact on the sustainability of many farms. Farmers in the Northern Cape, Western Cape, Eastern Cape and Limpopo are still under threat by the continuing drought.

Agri SA again appeals to South Africans to contribute to Agri SA’s drought disaster fund in any way. Contributions have ranged from feed, diesel, trucks and financial donations and remain welcome. Since 2015, thousands of farmers and farm workers have benefitted from the fund. Agri SA is thankful – these communities need all the help we can give.

Agri SA has, with the help of various donations, made more than 200 deliveries of feed in drought areas to date. Food parcels and water were delivered to farmers, farmworkers and rural areas in 2016.

“Agri SA collaborates with other non-governmental organisations and role-players so as to help more people,” said Christo van der Rheede, Agri SA deputy executive director. “This cooperation is crucial to ensuring that drought aid is distributed as cost-effective, transparent and as fair as possible.”

The Agri SA Drought Disaster Fund ensures that farms remain in production and that jobs and food security are protected.

“Let’s stand by our farmers and their workers by supporting them in their time of need.” – Press release
