Trees for Tanzania "If a Muslim plants a tree or sows seeds & then a bird, or a person or animal eats from it, it is regarded as a charitable gift"Trees are an important part of our life. They provide us with two of life's essentials - oxygen and food. But the importance of these perennial plants goes further as they offer so much more, ranging from replenishment of the soil to being a habitat for living creatures, to providing shade and even adding value to properties.In some parts of the world, trees are a blessing taken for granted and the growing rate of deforestation globally is having an adverse effect on the environment and communities.Islamic Help’s Trees for Change campaign is responsible for planting trees in Tanzania to conserve the environment.
