GOOD MORNING ANGELS 13 SEPTEMBER 2017 (NORTHERN CAPE FARMERS/CARING DAISIES #BoereHulp)

The drought that devastated the northern parts of the country, especially in the Northwest, is still fresh in our memories. In early 2016, Jacaranda FM’s listeners helped #ProjectWaterdrop take millions of liters of water to several communities. Good Morning Angels helped two SPCAs in affected areas care for dying animals, while our friends, the Caring Daisies, raised funds for feed for distribution to farms, where livestock was dying.

The drought in our part of the country was “broken” by September last year and the GDP grew by some 2% thanks largely to the agriculture sector that pulled together after the crisis.

But, the drought in South Africa is not over. It has moved to the Western and Northern Cape. The situation in farming communities in the Karoo-area of South Africa is not great at all. Farmers are again struggling to keep their livestock fed. Animals are dying.

A video of a desperate and crying farmer, pleading for help, went viral last week, and this time farmers and sponsors in the North West are returning the help they received to those struggling in the Karoo.

Again, responding to the call for help by our country’s drought stricken food producers, the Caring Daisies have rallied sponsors to help.
