Our farmers help communities in dire need for food.

Due to the decreasing food supplies & desperate calls for aid

farmers from across KwaZulu – Natal,

stepped in, to provide immediate help.

 

Farmers helping farmers

Farmers from Ixopo, Highflats, Kokstad, Mount Currie and Mooi Rivier all donated fresh and dry produce,

seedlings and milk to rural communities.

By partnering with local organisations, churches and municipalities, they were able to assist 4500 families.

The Kokstad Community Care Centre, the Kokstad Chamber of Commerce,

local ward Councillors and churches helped identify all the families in need.

 

There was an overwhelming response from the farmers as they donated 5000 bottles of milk,

cabbage, tomatoes, maize, potatoes, fruit and other fresh and dry produce.

These were all collected, packaged and delivered door to door.

 

“When we heard that spaza shops were not among the initial list of essential suppliers,

we knew our communities would suffer greatly and that we needed to help,”

said Bruce Alwood, Chairman on the Ixopo Farmers Association Trust.
