Sultan Al-Bohra gifts 250 date palm trees

KUWAIT: Sultan Al-Bohra Dr Mufaddal Saifuddin gifted 250 date palm trees as a gesture of support to the government and people of Kuwait, especially the farming community in the country. The date palm tree donation project is aimed at promoting sustainable agricultural options in the region, while also reducing the effects of climate change.

To inaugurate the project, Saifuddin planted a date palm tree alongside officials of the Public Authority for Agricultural Affairs and Fish Resources. “The cultivation of the date palm tree is crucial as per Kuwait’s national development plan to achieve food security, improve nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture. Dates are a major cash crop of the country and a means of livelihood for the farming community, hence this gift by the Sultan Al-Bohra to the people of Kuwait will provide long-term benefits,” a PAAAFR official said.

Sharing details about the project, Huzefa Yusuf, Project Coordinator of the Dawoodi Bohras of Kuwait added: “Around 2-meter-high date palm trees will be planted across four locations. Like his predecessors, Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin has always guided the Dawoodi Bohra community to contribute to the protection and conversation of the environment. This date palm tree donation project is a manifestation of this commitment.”
