Hydro provided electrical equipment to the farmers. They needed electricity, otherwise none of their equipment would work. They were at risk of losing their herds, literally losing all their livestock. So, we got them generators. We collected all the generators that we could find in North America, Canada, the United States. We also got generators from Germany. We gave the generators to farmers, dairy farmers, and big poultry producers. Many farmers benefited from this and they did not lose their livestock. This allowed them to continue their operations.
