19/09/2018 - Calvinia Farmers
Gift of the Givers visited the drought stricken area of Calvinia where it's effects have been devastating. 57 farmers lost their farms and 200 farm workers their jobs.
We delivered Soya Bales to the distressed farmers and 200 Food Parcels and Blankets to the now unemployed farm workers and their families.
The Gift of the Givers team proceeded to Hantam Primary School where TFG scarves and Beanies were handed out to Grade R and Grade 1 learners.
The final stop for the day was at Sorgvliet ACVV Tehuis vir Bejaarders Old Age Home with a handover over Nestle Nescafe Coffee and Cremora Milk Powder. Community leaders and Pastors of Calvinia said this is a historic occasion as this is a first for Calvinia.
