Aga Khan, the leader of the Ismaili community, has announced that he will donate one hundred thousand euros to reforest the areas most destroyed by the last major fires. The one hundred thousand euros which he will make available, will be used to clean the Pinhal de Leiria and surrounding plantation. It is estimated that the area covered will be 75 hectares and will receive 156,000 new trees.
The donation was announced today in Lisbon by Prince Amyn Aga Khan, brother of the leader of the Ismaili community, during a reception he presided over to mark Imamat Day, an event that gathered hundreds of people at the capital’s Ismaili Center.
This reforestation project was organized in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture, which will now implement it through the Institute of Conservation of Nature and Forests, entity responsible for identifying the area of intervention. The entire reforestation process should take place between January and March of next year.
