No Rain for Drought-Stricken E. Cape Farmers. Urgently Need South Africa’s Help

Burre Burger, founder of Droogtehulp, is urgently seeking help from fellow South Africans on behalf of farmers in the Eastern Cape and Southern Cape who are broken and desperate. Watch videos below.

Despite the downpours in South Africa earlier this week, the heartbreaking photos and videos on this page – taken this week, on Monday 2 July and Tuesday 3 July 2018 – reveal the devastating drought that is still gripping parts of the country.

Burger told SAPeople: “The Cape area was blessed with a lot of rain during the last month, but the Eastern Cape is still very dry, as well as parts of the Southern Cape. They almost had zero rainfall in some areas… and therefore they need us now more than ever to help them.”

On Monday alone Burger received 17 whatsapps and 12 emails from desperate farmers in the drought-stricken areas. He receives videos too – “Delney made me cry with her video yesterday,” he admits. (Watch below.)

“They’re still struggling from Heidelberg up into Aberdeen… And even if it rains today, it does not rain maize or green fields…

“So yes the drought is still bad. The farmers are destroying some Noors (a thorny plant) at this moment, just to be able to give their cattle something.

“All we ask from you is to make a small donation towards the drought relief fund, and help them to help the farmers.”

According to Burger the fund is a non-profit company and has already delivered more then 780 trucks of hope to farmers all over South Africa.

You can help DroogteHulp today to help a farmer – who in turn helps us all at least three times a day: at breakfast, lunch and dinner…
