Drought Angels provides a unique service for which it is has become well known for within the rural sector. Drought Angels is a small charity run by big hearts, who offer a listening ear, a warm hug and personalised support given to each family. We like to tell our farmers that this is not a handout but a Thank You. “Thank you for all you do to put the food on our tables because without you we would all go hungry”.
Through direct personal contact with the farmers, Drought Angels have earned a reputation for providing personalised, heartfelt and discreet assistance. We help those who would not normally reach out but prefer to battle it alone, which can lead to severe depression and in some cases suicide. One-on-one support aides in ‘breaking down the barriers of a proud demographic who quite often have never received a hand up. They can be the first generation of many who have to contemplate walking off the land and selling bloodlines that have taken years to build up. These are the people of most concern and often forgotten.
