About Mauritania

Mauritania is a West African country which is entirely desert apart from the north bank of the Senegal River on its southern border. It is home to 19 People Groups, 15 of whom remain unreached according to the Joshua Project. The largest People Group is the Moors who are a Berber people who were converted to Islam in the 7th century by Arab missionaries; the Moors were one of the People Groups who invaded the Iberian Peninsula in the 8th century and set up an Islamic Caliphate. Mauritania is plagued by hostile desert conditions, extreme poverty, racial tensions and perhaps most depressing of all, slavery. Even though slavery has been officially abolished many Moors still own slaves and child slavery is rampant.
