Save the Sheep is a registered non-profit company based in Sutherland in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa.

 

We are currently running several drought interventions projects in the Sutherland District.

 

Current projects include:

  • Providing farmers with fodder to feed their animals
  • Drilling project to provide farmers with drinking water for human and animal use
  • Solar pump project supplying farmers with solar pump systems to get water from bore holes
  • Tank Project supplying farmers with water tanks for storage of water
  • We run an emergency pantry, to provide food to farmers in need.

 

To run these projects, we rely on donors to provide us with fodder, food and funding.

Why we started

Save the Sheep

The Karoo is gripped in the worst drought in 220 years. Farmers in the Northern Cape Province do not receive any drought relief subsidy from either provincial or national government. Thus, the Sutherland farming community had to become self-reliant to ensure they survive the ongoing drought.  

 

We established a non-profit company, Save the Sheep (NPC), with the primary objective to assist communities in times of disaster, drought and related acts of nature. The committee that runs Save the Sheep, on a voluntary basis, are all farmers in the Sutherland District.
