Williston Drought Relief

Williston Drought Relief

Personal message

#ImStaying has headed a call from Farmers Aid NPC to assist with raising funds for the drought-stricken Northern Cape, Williston farming community.

Over the past 9 years, this area has received only 13 ml of rain. The severe lack of water has seen farms dry up, killing off all vegetation. This has created a lack of food for livestock and thousands of animals have died from starvation.

"I know of two farmers who committed suicide because of the drought" - Western Cape head of the department of agriculture, Joyene Isaac.

Willem Symington, a sheep farmer in Graaff-Reinet in the Eastern Cape, said many farmers were experiencing a sense of hopelessness and depression. "I would compare the stress to living in a war zone, except you can get away from a battlefield," said Symington. Read more: Sunday Times 

Starving farm workers are no longer working for a salary, but rather exchanging their labour for food to feed their families. This broken community has no way out and are turning to their remaining livestock as a source of food.

As one of the largest online communities on the African continent #ImStaying  members have a real chance to make an impact in the lives of this community by way of donating money to this Backabuddy fund which we have created, or by way of food, water and toiletries.

We have already generated over R40 000 in less than two days. To put this into perspective a donation of R200 could feed a small family for two days or more, or provide one bail of food for the livestock.

We can make a huge difference in the lives of hundreds of people by coming together on this project.

*Funds raised will be administered directly by Backabuddy NPC, and transferred directly to Farmers Aid NPC for drought relief.

GOOD THOUGHTS. GOOD WORDS. GOOD DEEDS.
