Case study: How trees helped Sultan
"I can give my children nutritious fruit to eat." Sultan, Bangladesh
Sultan lives in a refugee camp in Bangladesh with his wife and daughter. The camp suffers extremely high temperatures. It can be difficult to find food or make a living.
Thankfully, we worked with local experts to provide mango and plum saplings to Sultan. He’s been growing fruit in his front garden ever since. The trees provide shade from the hot summer sun and somewhere to keep cool. As the trees develop, they will grow fruit, providing Sultan’s family with nutritious food options they would normally struggle to find. They can also sell any surplus wood from the trees for money, or use it as firewood to cook with.
Sultan enjoys looking after his fruit trees and watching them grow. When Sultan and his family are able to move on from the camp, he plans to leave the trees behind for the people still living there. He hopes that they will continue to provide cooling shade and nutritious food long into the future, telling us: “It is a good deed to plant trees.”
