The local economy of Kebili depends on farming. One of the poorest parts of Tunisia, high unemployment in the southern province leaves many households struggling without a regular source of income. Mohsen Ben Salem, a farmer living in Limaguess village, relies on the money he makes from growing vegetables to take care of his six dependants. Alongside many others in Kebili, Mohsen lost his sole source of income when storms destroyed his greenhouse and insects razed his crops in 2016.

Struggling to make ends meet and – like many poor people excluded from traditional banking institutions – unable to get a loan from the bank, he faced borrowing money from friends and relatives.

Then Islamic Relief Waqf stepped in, giving 40 families in Mohsen’s village the opportunity to earn a dignified, reliable income.

“I would like to thank the Islamic Relief Waqf. Without this help, I would have suffered.”

“Islamic Relief Waqf provided us with plastic sheets,” said Mohsen, recalling how heavy winds blew away the protective sheeting from his greenhouse, “and fertilisers and pesticides. As well as receiving vital equipment and seeds, the farmers also learned to protect their crops from pests and to increase the productivity of their greenhouses. To make sure the project achieves lasting impact in the area, the local community and the regional government are now continuing the scheme.

The difference between IWF and other organisations is that IWF will invest your donations and bring a sustainable return year on year and serve people indefinitely.
