Olive Tree Planting

Posted on Feb 17, 2013 in HAFSA Projects

In Autumn 2012, HAFSA raised funds to buy 500 olive trees for families in Sabastiya. On December 17th, 400 of these were planted on lands around Sabastiya.

Olive trees are of vital importance for subsistence in Palestine, supporting the livelihood of over 100,000 families across the occupied West Bank. In two years’ time, these olive trees will begin bearing fruit. May they live a long and fruitful life!
