Wafra (Arabic: الوفرة‎) is the southernmost area in Kuwait. It is part of Ahmadi Governorate and is well known for its fertile soil and farms. It is parallel with the Saudi border. Wafra and Abdali in the North, are the only two cities in Kuwait known for farming and the animal sector. Wafra Farms are fed by the underground lakes.
