Your charity gives hope

In Mauritania, where 1 in 4 children is already living in extreme poverty, the effects of desertification, whereby formerly fertile land turns into barren desert is having a devastating impact.

Muslim Hands is working with the community in the village of Taguilalett, which is being submerged in sand at an alarming rate, to plant thousands of trees as a natural sand barrier, as well as using crops and innovative irrigation techniques to provide fertile plots of land for farming.

For just £50 you can plant ten trees that will bring a whole community back to life, giving them protection from the sand, shade from the heat and sustainable incomes for their families.
