Supporting our farmers

If you would like to support the communities affected by the drought, we are taking donations. Please keep in mind that during times of need we are often inundated with public generosity, however, our teams on the front line are currently requesting cash donations as they allow us to provide immediate assistance to the community.

Cash donations also allow the people affected to recover with dignity by purchasing items they need most, which also injects much-needed funds into the local economy.
