05-ind-engen-r1million.Engen Petroleum, a leading producer and marketer of fuels, lubricants and oil-based products, handed over a cheque for R1-million to Agri SA for drought relief at this year’s Nampo agricultural show, which ran from 17 – 20 May. The donation was made in response to a call for help from the agricultural company Senwes. Engen understood the negative impact exerted by the current drought on agriculture, and hoped that its donation will help to make a small contribution in assisting farmers. Agri SA says the donation will make a big difference, as for every R1 received towards the Drought Relief Fund, the value given back is R5, which goes towards farmers, throughput, feeding pellets and similar products. The Drought Relief Fund is not only used for Agri SA members, as the money is also used to support all farmers, whether commercial or emerging farmers. Assistance is also offered to the community.
