There is great reward in planting trees, reviving dead land and feeding people and animals alike - but with vast swathes of land becoming dry and arid desert across Africa every year, it's vital that we act now to keep the land alive. Help us turn the desert green!
“Never does a Muslim a plant a tree or sow a crop and a bird, human being, or beast eats from it without earning the reward of charity.” (hadith of the Prophet ﷺ, narrated by Bukhari and Muslim)
Islamic Relief has launched an emergency appeal to get vital aid to vulnerable families as the crisis in the Central African Republic continues to deepen.
Fighting between government forces and armed groups has forced one million people to flee their homes in the Central African Republic (CAR). Hundreds of thousands are seeking safety in neighbouring countries, with those that remain facing a deteriorating humanitarian situation.
Around 73,000 Central Africans are now living in Chad, alongside other refugees fleeing the violence. Many are sheltering in camps in the south, but thousands more have headed to the capital city.
Islamic Relief is providing vital humanitarian assistance in Chad, to vulnerable people fleeing the war-torn Central African Republic.
Around 100 families will receive tents, cooking sets, sleeping mats and blankets. Two shelters will be constructed to provide community volunteers – trained on emergency preparedness and response – with a place from which to mobilise.
A project to assist communities hit by seasonal flooding in Chad – one of the poorest and least economically developed countries on the planet – began this month.

As many as 20 million people are facing chronic food shortages across the Sahel region of West Africa - some of whom are on the brink of starvation. Resilience has been debilitated in West Africa due to cyclical droughts, poverty, desertification, political conflict and insufficient food production - and with climate change things are only set to get worse.
Over 350,000 people in the Niger and Chad have been affected by the floods. In Chad, 70,000 people have been made homeless and in Niger, that figure stands at 200,000.

Since war broke out in Sudan's Darfur region in March 2003, some 197,000 refugees have crossed the border into Chad. They are heavily reliant on aid agencies for food, shelter, healthcare and education.
Eastern Chad is a very inhospitable environment. After two consecutive poor rain seasons, cattle stocks are decimated and grazing lands are overused.
Heavy rainfall in parts of Darfur is threatening to cut off much of the area from aid supplies. Within the next two weeks, the rains are likely to spread throughout the whole region, hampering aid distribution and worsening conditions in the refugee camps.
Months of conflict in the Darfur district of Western Sudan between rebel forces and the government has forced thousands of civilians to flee into neighbouring Chad. More than 70,000 refugees are reported to be scattered over 600 km, most of them women and children.
