A black Afrikaans-speaking young man called on South Africans to help farmers during times of severe droughts.
Doccie Shultz inspired social media users with a video, that is a plea for help in times of severe droughts.
Speaking in Afrikaans, the young man calls on South Africans to help farmers during these dry times.
So, Briefly.co.za decided to translate what Shultz is saying in the inspiring video in English:
"Currently I am standing in a field where I entertained myself as a child. Where I rode a self-made wooden horse to the top of that hill," he started off while pointing at the hill.
"I think I rode that wooden horse up to the age of 18. I took a simple childhood memory and compared it with today. If you look next to me, there is a prickly pear tree that we removed from our backyard and planted in its natural habitat," he added.
"South Africa, it is very dry. The farmers need our help. They're the people who, with passion and a smile, make sure we have food on our tables and food in our stomachs."
"They (farmers) are now in a position where they need our help. I read up on El Nino effect, and I also focused in Geography class when my teacher spoke. Go and read about it, and the effects it has agriculture," he added.
"It has a massive impact- it influences our infrastructure, and it is also going to have an impact on our pockets."
"South Africa, the farmers need our help. If you think about it, if every South African gave only R1, how many farmers out there won't we be able to help?"
Shultz then called on South Africans to visit www.droogtehulp.co.za and help farmers impacted by the drought.
