Helping Communities Thrives
Said Mali, a hardworking farmer in Khyber district, faced challenges in utilizing his land effectively due to changing weather, insufficient resources, and water scarcity. Feeling disheartened, he dreamt of a thriving farm but struggled with traditional methods.
In this time of adversity, Islamic Relief helped Said Mali by providing essential support in the form of drip irrigation technology for his olive and lemon farm. Over the course of just a few years, this support transformed his farm into thriving success.
“My farm’s produce has gained significant popularity, with a growing demand for my olive-based products. From olive pickles, oil and tea to lemon-based products, such as lemon pickles and tangy lemon sauce, I sell them all in the market. The positive response not only motivates me for farming but has also translated into a rewarding source of income.”
In a bid to decarbonize the air, we are actively planting suitable trees in different parts of the country. As IR Pakistan carries out the biggest humanitarian response in Pakistan after the floods of 2022, we are building climate resilient houses in Sindh and Balochistan to withstand future disasters and risks.
