AGRI VALUE CHAIN RELIEF UMBRELLA

 

Delivery number 418688 open for donations

Disasters and episodes of adversity give way to a collective social and economic suffering, more so when it impacts the activities of the agricultural value chain.

With this reality in mind, the Senwes Group of Companies is uniting the agricultural value chain in a concerted effort to provide emergency relief to communities affected by disruptive events. * As the name suggests, the project was developed in such a way that it allows for multiple relief initiatives to reside under the relief banner.

These disruptive events may vary in nature, from humanitarian crisis such as the Covid-19 pandemic, to natural disasters, animal disease outbreaks and acts of unrest and instability.

Born out of the need to help ensure food security amidst the disrupted economic activities due to the lockdown, as a result of the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, the initiative has grown to include:

  • Humanitarian Relief
  • Flood Relief
  • Fire Relief
  • Drought Relief

* The different colours in the AVC Relief Umbrella logo represents the multiple relief initiatives, namely humanitarian relief (black), flood relief (blue), fire relief (red), drought relief (yellow) and Senwes specific initiatives (green).

FOOD FROM A FARMER EXPLAINED

 

Once farmers have made their donations to the AVC Food Umbrella account, Senwes’ silos will receive, handle and store the donated maize. Senwes’ logistics subsidiary, Grainovation, will then sponsor the transport and distribute the donated maize from the silos to the millers. The millers will mill and package the maize at no cost whereafter Senwes will facilitate the distribution of the maize to old age homes, feeding schemes and farm schools.

Senwes has opened the AVC Food Umbrella 418688 account with a generous donation which will see 14 000 5kg bags maize meal handed out to those in need.


“Conservatively estimated, South Africa will soon start harvesting its second biggest maize crop of around 15,5 million tonnes, thanks to having been blessed with a good production season. At an average price of R2 700 per ton, it would equate to a total farm gate production value in excess of R40 billion. In a time of extreme hardship for many, the industry can play a significant role to stabilise society and alleviate hunger amongst the neediest of society over the duration of this pandemic, which will probably last for another eight to ten months” according to Karen Grobler, Agbiz Marketing and Communications Manager.

Donate to this cause by delivering maize at any Senwes Grainlink silo on delivery number 418688. Other contributions outside of this spectrum can be made completing the form below:
