DWCS, as a ministry of Sisters of Charity Community Care Ltd, is a registered Not-for-Profit Charity which relies on the generosity of individuals, groups and businesses to assist as we offer support to farming communities.

Farmers suffer the impact of the unrelenting droughts, destructive floods, fires, wild dog attacks and dust storms not to mention facing the heartbreaking decision to sell quality stud breeders and/or to walk away from their farms that, on many occasions, have been in the family for many generations.

Whether you donate $2 or $200, every dollar will help our farmers and their families. It will also lift their spirits and give them hope for the future. EVERY FARMER NEEDS OUR HELP!

Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.
