Enduring Harvest was established by Dr. Sajad Zalzala, an Iraqi American practicing physician in the United States. Early in his career he recognized a direct correlation between food and disease. He wanted to improve global food security and mitigate the devastating effects of climate change by providing sustainably produced healthy food, employment opportunities for at-risk communities and education centers.
The Iraq Pilot Farm is located in the southern Province of Samawah, Iraq which was chosen due to its remote, peaceful location and the positive impact the farm would have on the environment and the people. The land has been seriously degraded in the area causing extreme poverty. We plan to improve the natural conditions of this region for the local communities, starting with our 20-acre regenerative farm. This farm will act as blueprint for what we are hoping to replicate in other at-risk nations.
If you believe in a dignity-first approach to serving our world’s most marginalized communities, consider supporting our work.
