Farm-Africa forms new independent presence in the US

Farm-Africa, the UK charity which works with African farmers to alleviate hunger, has formed an independent branch of the charity in the US and has plans to set up in Ireland as well.

The new charity has a board based in Boston and is in the process of looking for an office.

Dr Christie Peacock, the UK charity's chief executive, said the US launch aimed to expand and develop Farm's supporter base. "Our supporters are mainly farmers. But our base of support among British farmers is shrinking and they are becoming less well off,

Peacock said.

Farm in America will be targeting black farmers because of their "natural affinity

with African farmers. It will also be seeking support from vets.

The charity will promote farmer-to-farmer links between American and African farmers through donations, study tours and exchange visits. It also hopes to widen issues of common agreement between farmers in Africa and the US.
