Plant their future!
Nablus and its surrounding villages are suffering from the Israeli military occupation. One way to support the people there is to help them use their land productively by planting trees.
Trees, especially, the olive tree, are the traditional livelihood of this area. Many families rely heavily on the harvest but lack the money to increase their yield.
By planting trees we will relieve poverty, ensure the future of the next generations and populate empty land that is often taken by the adjacent Israeli settlers.
Initially 12 villages, which have been identified as the most vulnerable, will receive olive trees and fruit trees of the almond family (almond, apricot and peach).
Palestinian, Israeli and International groups have joined the project to provide volunteers who will help to plant the trees. FONSA and DNTAwill help to raise the essential funds.
- 1 olive tree £4
- 1 fruit tree £2
Please donate now! The target is 10,000 trees
