Help our farmers back on their feet after devastating veld fires in the Free State

South Africa’s rural area is suffering after devastating fires. This disaster has an impact on food production and has a devastating effect on the economy in the affected areas.

We need to assist these communities. That is why Free State Agriculture has established a disaster fund. The Free State Agriculture Disaster Fund ensures that the aid gets out quickly and directly where it is most needed.

Help ons boere weer opstaan na verwoestende brande in die Vrystaat

Suid-Afrika se landelike gebied gaan gebuk onder verwoestende brande. Hierdie ramp het ʼn impak op voedselproduksie en het ook die ekonomie in die geaffekteerde gebiede platgeslaan.

Ons moet hierdie gemeenskappe bystaan. Daarom het Vrystaat Landbou ʼn rampfonds gestig. Die Vrystaat Landbou-rampfonds verseker dat die hulp spoedig en direk uitkom waar dit die nodigste is.

Jy kan Vrystaat Landbou help om hierdie boere weer op die been te kry.
