Little Karoo receives humanitarian help

About 150 farmers and their workers from Ladismith in the Little Karoo have received drought and humanitarian assistance.

South African Water Warriors facilitated the transportation of donations, which include 150 lucerne bales, 15 tonnes of maize, one-ton potatoes, 30-ton water, about R70 000 groceries and R15 000 diesel.

With no decent rain the past seven years in the region, many farmers opted out of the sector.

Others have dipped into their savings to keep going.
