Many factors such as drought and plant diseases due to global warming have started to affect agriculture in all countries of the world.

By taking action for the people going through a difficult time due to the long-standing war, in addition, IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation, distributed seeds free of charge to farmers in October 2021. In recent days, the harvests of the seeds that were planted in the soil were made.
