Droogte Hulp lends a helping hand to drought-stricken farmers and workers
Founder of Droogte Hulp, Burre Burger, has been helping farmers in drought-stricken areas feed their livestock.
Since March this year, Droogte Hulp has been consistently delivering truckloads of maize and alfalfa grass to farms in the Eastern and Western Cape.
Burger says money has been coming in to help them buy grass and maize to deliver to these farms.
We try to serve all farmers at the moment, big or small, with fodder or mielies.Burre Burger, Founder of Droogte Hulp
On weekends we drop off non-perishable food to farm workers in Gauteng, Free State as well as Cape Town just to say to them we care for you as much as we care for the animals.Burre Burger, Founder of Droogte Hulp
Droogte Hulp also delivers water to some of these places. Toyota has stepped in to help with transport for Droogte Hulp and Gift of the Givers.
If we could only give a little hope because every day is nearer to the rain.Burre Burger, Founder of Droogte Hulp
