Free State Farm Fire Fund:
A year ago, Jacaranda FM listeners donated Rand 5 million to help farmers in the western Free State after devastating fires. Good Morning Angels has partnered with rugby legend Springbok Bakkies Botha to immediately distribute aid in the form of feed, medical supplies and infrastructure repairs to affected farmers worth R 4 million. With the remaining funds, a special fire truck was built to service farms in the area. A water tanker is also being built and together with the fire truck will guarantee farmers a fighting chance in the next fire….
In October 2020, farms in the Western Free State were ravaged by uncontrollable fires. The country was shocked as farming communities battled as their livestock and land caught fire. Ultimately, at least 100,000 hectares of pastures, crops and agricultural infrastructure were destroyed in five fires. Hundreds of head of cattle as well as wildlife perished.
Good Morning Angels on Breakfast with Martin Bester answered the call for help for these farming communities from legend and Springbok farmer, Bakkies Botha.
In the span of two weeks, Jacaranda FM listeners have amazed us all with their immense generosity and support as we have raised 5,000,000 Rand to help those who make sure the country has food on the market. table.
Thank you to all the angels who make Good Morning Angels possible – every Wednesday morning – on Breakfast with Martin Bester.
