Israeli experts help emerging farmers
Last week SABC2 ran a 20-minute feature on the “Israel-South Africa agriculture partnerships Living Land” programme. The show, mostly in vernacular with sub-titles, is all about the help Israel is giving to emerging farmers in South Africa. The programme is an eye-opener and features Ambassador Arthur Lenk, agricultural expert Isaac Isaac and others.
The video-makers travel the length and breadth of South Africa meeting farmers from across South Africa who are using Israeli technology and financial assistance to improve their yields and income.
The film features the Embassy Mashav (International Development and Cooperation) director, Isaac Isaac as well as the Ambassador and others. And, of course, many of the farmers who express their gratitude for Israel’s bountiful largesse.
