Locust disaster fund

Help our farmers back on their feet after the devastation caused by locusts

South Africa’s rural areas are seriously threatened by an exceptionally large locust pest. This disaster will have a major impact on food production and could also paralyse the economy in the affected areas. Therefore, the necessary prevention measures should be taken before the eggs hatch again.

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 aid and the necessary precautionary training and equipment gets out quickly and directly where it is most needed.

You can help Free State Agriculture to get these farmers back on their feet.
