Rachaya Al-Foukhar is known for its traditional clay artifacts and its land for agriculture. People cultivate several products including wheat, mulberries, cherries, figs, apples, grapes and olives. As in many regions in Lebanon water is not reaching the cultivated land. To find a solution to this problem, the Municipality received a grant to dig a well, coat its walls and conduct water testing. However, to complete the project, additional equipment was needed to connect the water from the well to the agricultural lands surrounding the village. Through a grant from SEAL, the municipality received a vertical water pump, 1,400 meters water pipes, necessary electric cables and other accessories to connect the water from the well to the big reservoir of the village, which in turn will provide the water for irrigation.
