23 – 25 January 2020

The first convoy of 2020
was a tremendous success

60 People participated in the convoy to deliver relief to 25 farmers, their families and 6,000 sheep

We covered thousands of kilometres over 3 days. It was not without its trials and tribulations. Trucks broke down and had to return, trailers lost wheels along the way, plenty of tyres were destroyed.

It was an incredible experience. Our convoy participants ranged from 3 to 77 years of age. People from all over came selflessly to join the convoy.

Seeing the appreciation on the farmers´ faces was truly humbling. To be able to feed their families and starving livestock, should be their hard-earned right, they are accustomed to feeding the nation, to feeding South Africa. Seeing farmers with their heads bowed low is heart-breaking.

How you can help

South Africa’s drought is hitting hard, and it is killing animals everywhere. Sustained hunger with little to no food or water and the continued breeding of animals for food, has been compounded by the relentless drought. All this is causing the sustained demise of thousands of animals.
