@WRSA Foundation’s BIG NEWS is out!

Saturday, 19 February 2022 at Castle de Wildt, Modimolle was a milestone day in the history of the WRSA Foundation.

Despite the rain more than 300 people attended the @Apple and @Ruhan show where the big announcement was made just before their show started. Charl du Toit, one of the Founding Directors of the WRSA Foundation made the announcement that Willem Strauss, President of the Vodacom Blue Bulls Rugby Union, is the ambassador of the WRSA Foundation.

We are proud to have him on board as our ambassador and are looking forward to making a meaningful difference and changing the lives of those in need.

In Willem’s words: ‘’Both the Blue Bulls and the WRSA Foundation share the same values.”

ASSISTING WILDLIFE RANCHERS & COMMUNITIES WHEN DISASTER SUCH AS UNPREDICTED DEVASTATING DROUGHTS, RAVAGING WILDFIRES & OTHER NATURAL DISASTERS STRIKES.

The WRSA Foundation is a non-profit company founded by WRSA’s chairman Gerhard Heyneke, CEO Richard York, and Financial Director Charl du Toit, in November 2020. These three gentlemen jointly manage the Foundation.

The main purpose of the WRSA Foundation is to assist game farmers and communities in times of crisis and need. It also affords a way for game ranchers who can aid fellow ranchers and communities. It is in the game ranchers’ nature to offer selfless help when there is an emergency, and this attitude has long been demonstrated spontaneously in the game industry. This explains why the WRSA Foundation’s motto is Where heart and hand meet. With a focus on support, research, education and the environment, hard work is done to improve the conditions of game ranchers and the entire community in need.

Natural disasters such as droughts, floods and fires are some of the biggest risks facing any farming community. It is usually completely unpredictable, and the consequences are brutal and disturbing. Traditional drought relief efforts are focussed on ‘mainstream’ agriculture, and sadly game ranching is often overlooked.

This is where the WRSA Foundation comes in to establish a structure with organised fundraising and effective coordination of resources for the benefit of game ranchers and communities affected by disasters and adversity.

The help and support provided by the WRSA Foundation is not only limited to members of WRSA. We are there for every game farmer in need!

We are proud to announce that

strong partners have joined hands with us!

All 3 the projects undertaken since August 2021 were goodwill efforts by WRSA to coordinate much needed relief to private game ranchers/reserves who were most severely affected by prolonged drought conditions and ravaging wildfires. The priority was to sustain existing herds for the time being.

When disaster strikes, we identify a coordinator with access to safe storage and knowledge of the area and he/she assists with fair distribution when donations are delivered. For each project, a unique custom electronic registration form is developed where specific information is gathered from the game ranchers to ascertain the extent of the assistance he needs. Thereafter a call for assistance is sent out and all the donations get delivered by a network of partners and donors. The coordinator manages the distribution of donations according to the information gathered to ensure that everyone that registered are assisted.

We also have an online donation form. If you wish to donate to this worthy course, please click on the donate button.
