Project 3 we send the following:
- 4 interlinks to Warrenton where the was a lot of veldt fires;
- 8 Interlinks to Jansenville; and
- 2 interlinks to Aberdeen.
In total we donated 22 interlinks with a project value of R1 369 994.50 in the 2018/2019 year.
The project is not an once off, it is still going strong. We as Hartz186 would like to challenge other Tables to assist us with fund for transport. The farmers in Vaalharts and surroundings are still donating feed, but the transport is our biggest challenge.
