Drought Relief Project 2016

Pulpit Media Group takes hands with Farmers In Need and Hope Grass Project

South Africa is in the grip of a terrible drought, the worst since the 1980’s. Economists predict a serious impact on the farming communities, as well as on food security in the country. Livestock farmers are forced to cull their herds due to a shortage of pastures. Five thousand animals have already been killed in Limpopo alone due to the drought, because most of the farmers cannot afford the feed and supplements anymore.

Pulpit Media Group is making a contribution and challenges its listeners and financial supporters to do the same.

PMG is sponsoring a load of grain and covers the fuel and transport cost thereof. One load of grain will bring relief to five farmers in need.

You can get involved by the following means:

  • Sponsoring grain or offering infrastructure to cover transport costs.
  • Donate your mown grass to the different distribution points from where it will be taken to be processed and distributed to the farmers.
  • Constant prayer for the farmers and in particular for the catchment areas of the dams.

Here is an image of the current situation with our dams. We will keep you updated with the progress in this regard on a weekly basis.

Do’s and don’ts on how to prepare your grass for delivery

  • DO make sure that all domestic pet faeces are removed from the area BEFORE cutting grass.
  • DO put your cut grass in bags.
  • DO attempt to DRY the cut grass as far as possible.
  • DO NOT leave the grass in big piles.
  • DO NOT let piles of grass heat up.
  • DO NOT immediately put the cut grass in plastic bags.
  • DO NOT leave closed plastic bags with freshly cut grass in the sun / heat as this may lead to fermentation.
  • DO NOT donate grass recently treated with fertilizer or pesticides.
