Help me help our farmers

Personal message

Help me help our farmers. Our farmers are in trouble. In serious trouble because of drought. Even in the western cape still, despite some good rains in some areas. Drought conditions throughout the country the past couple of years have hit many farmers and farming communities really hard. The situation has become so bad that they are losing absolutely everything because of it.

Our farmers are very important to us in our everyday lives. These are the people that work day in and day out to make sure there is food on the shelves at the best prices possible so that we are able to feed our families.

I can’t just sit and watch them struggle. I want to help, I need to help. But I need your help to be able to help our farmers. Now I know there are quite a few good organizations and individuals that have been working very hard for years already doing campaigns and whatever they can for donations, animal feed and water for our farmers. Much respect to them for what they have accomplished. But I feel I can help in a bit of a different way. I want to help farmers in such a way so that they can help themselves better and for many years to come without having to ever suffer the losses they have been ever again because of drought.

I have come to realize over time that many farmers that have boreholes can’t really make much use of that water when their municipal supply or stored rainwater runs out, because of the impurities like high salinity, iron etc in the borehole water. So water purification systems can really help them a lot. But I have also realized how much they can help themselves if they have Containerized Fodder Systems (Hydroponic Fodder Systems). These systems are protected from the harsh conditions and when done right can produce very nutritional animal feed every 7 days.

I want to make it my mission by installing borehole water purification and fodder systems for as many farmers as possible, free of charge of course. I have the know how, I have the tools and will do the labor but I don’t have the funds for the hardware needed to build and install these solutions. I need YOUR help with this. If I can get the financial backing from you, the public, (donations for the necessary equipment and products from companies also welcome) then I will do the work. And so together we can help our farmers not only survive this crisis, but also be able to get through the next without having to suffer the losses like they have been.

Funds will be used for all the necessary equipment and hardware needed to build and install borehole water purification and fodder growing systems.

This includes (but not limited to) : Filtration vessels, filter media, filter housings, filter cartridges, Reverse Osmosis membranes, RO housings, water pumps, valves, piping, fittings, shipping containers, aluminium racking, uv lighting, solar panels, batteries barley (fodder) etc

If you wish to donate goods that I can use for the filtration and fodder systems to help my campaign you can email me on [email protected]
