Desertification in Libya is met by a nationwide initiative where hundreds of volunteers are planting thousands of trees. The ‘Branches Campaign’ has been planting trees in both depleted woodlands and in areas that previously had no trees. The campaign goals are citizen awareness of environmental issues, preserve the environment, and increase the size of the forests. The effort is to educate Libyans regarding the importance of trees and to protect them from all kinds of tree logging. Pray that the forestation planting will be successful. Pray for millions of people to turn their hearts to the True and Living God (The Bible, Psalm 104:14).
