More than 4 million Indonesian farmers, hearing of the drought and famine throughout much of Africa in 1985, have collectively contributed foodstuffs worth US$6 million over a three-year period to help small-scale farmers in Africa. By July 1989, about 40 projects were completed or underway in 20 African countries. The money has been channelled through the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), which administers the Indonesian projects through its Office for Special Relief Operations (OSRO). The projects reflect the varied and numerous needs of African farmers, particularly their need for such inputs as tools, fertilizers, seeds, equipment and pesticides. Indonesian farmers have aimed to increase the self-sufficiency of African farmers through the improvement of food production and better prevention of post-harvest losses. More than 80 percent of the projects are used for the rehabilitation of agriculture while the rest is used for fisheries. At the invitation of FAO's Director-General, Edouard Saouma, five representatives of Indonesian farmers visited their project sites in four African countries in November 1988.
