[box type=”info”] UPDATE: This appeal is now over. Thanks to the donations we bought 500 trees of which 400 have already been planted![/box]
Dear members and supporters of Hanwell Friends of Sabastiya,
Help us to plant olive trees in Sabastiya!
Our aim is to buy at least 500 olive trees by the end of November which is when the planting season starts. The trees will be given to the poorest families in Sabastiya. One olive tree costs £5.
This has been suggested by Abu Yasser, our coordinator in Sabastiya, who will oversee the planting and distribution. This is an excellent way to support the village in a very real and practical way. Olive trees are of vital importance for subsistence in Palestine, they support the livelihood of over 100,000 families across the occupied West Bank.
£5 will buy one olive tree which will start producing olives in 2 years time.
