The 2016-2017 season will be remembered as the driest recorded since 1904, and has placed tremendous pressure on South Africa’s economy.

This is according to Solidarity, which has documented the countrywide drought through a series of photos.

The photos will form part of a presentation by the trade union on the drought, and will be auctioned off to raise money for the Transvaal Agricultural Union’s drought fund.

“The ripple effect of the drought will affect every South African; hence we are appealing to everyone to make a contribution, for each contribution will be a drop towards breaking the drought,” said Solidarity.

A selection of Solidarity’s drought images are posted below
