08/03/2016 - Animal Feed for Brandfort Farmers
This is Brandfort, a town in Freestate, where farmers are devastated by the effects of the drought. The land mourns for fields that are ruined, the ground is dry, and the mealie and sun flower plants that were supposed to be at shoulder height during this time of year, lie flat and dead. The financial burden is heavy to bear as grazing fields are barren and farmers are forced to sell their breeding cattle.
"Every cube counts" echoed by the 21 farmers who received 400 x 50 kg bags of Animal Feed from the Gift of the Givers team. Emily Thomas, our Project Manager, was too emotional to speak when she witnessed the distress of these poor, desperate farmers. Thank you South Africa for helping us in trying to help the drought stricken.
