Did you know...
… that trees can often survive drought even when other crops fail?
One of the trees that Tree Aid grow is the moringa tree. It is drought resistant and can grow in the hot and dry countries that they work in. The leaves of the moringa tree are incredibly nutritious, containing more vitamin C than oranges, more calcium than milk and more iron than spinach! This is just one of the many trees Tree Aid grow that can help to realise their vision for thriving, sustainable communities across the Sahel.
What makes Tree Aid different
Every year, the charity grows millions of trees and protects huge areas of land. They don’t just plant trees and walk away. They make sure local people have the training and tools they need to make each tree thrive.
Other ways to support
There are all sorts of ways you can give your support to Tree Aid, and help people across the Sahel region to transform their lives through the power of trees. Visit our website to find out more.
