Year in and year out, South African farmers have seen wildfires take everything they’ve earned and worked hard for in a blink of an eye. This year, South African farmers has seen fires early. We have seen multiple fires taking lives the past weeks related to WATER SHORTAGE, power cuts, heatwaves and the coronavirus pandemic in and around South Africa, and decided we need to help our farmers before it’s too late.

With donations made to this fundraiser, we can supply our farmers with FIRE GEL, fire blankets, PPE, FIRE EQUIPMENT and assistance for all fires. In result we can fight the battle as one and save our farmers and lands. They have lost so much already let’s give something back and show our support.
At the moment farmers are facing very difficult times resulting in water shortage, power cuts, farm murders, covid pandemic, old equipment etc
I wish to help these farmers, and I am asking for your generosity to help me in this effort.
