By the fig and the olive and [by] Mount Sinai, And [by] this city of security [Makkah]. Verily, We have certainly created man in the best of stature. (Quran 95:1-4)
Give £15, and provide a Palestinian family with an olive tree, ensuring they reap the fruit of the olive for years to come.
When you donate your olive tree with Human Appeal, we don’t simply provide seeds to farmers, we deliver healthy trees – around 1.6 to 2 metres in height and at least 3 years old, that are already producing fruit. We help the farmers to plant their trees, and support them along the way.
Your tree will be given to the farming family most in need in Gaza, Jerusalem or the West Bank.
80,000 families in Palestine rely on olive trees them as their main livelihood, but they represent more than just an income. For many, it is a symbol of their struggle, and of their permanence in the lands of their ancestors.
Since 1967, around 2.7 million trees in Palestine have been uprooted. Uncultivated land is far more likely to be confiscated, but olive trees require little equipment and are resistant to drought. This means that even when farmers are prevented from accessing their land, the olive tree remains hardy.
Each farming family that we help will receive 30-40 trees, supporting their livelihood of growing and selling olives for profit. An average mature olive tree produces 15 to 20 kilograms of olives per year.
Olive trees – the gift of endless rewards
Since the tree you donate will provide olives for years to come, this project is a Sadaqah Jariyah, providing endless blessings, even after you are gone. This Ramadan, show you care by gifting this thoughtful, blessed charity to your loved one. Donate an olive trees in their name, and we’ll give a personalised gift certificate to present to them within 2 – 4 weeks of donating.
Why give olive trees through Human Appeal?
We’ve been working in Palestine for 30 years. Since beginning our olive tree project in 2006, we’ve helped vulnerable Palestinian farmers to plant 50,000 trees, allowing them to restore uprooted and damaged land, and to sustain their livelihoods in the face of persecution.
Our skilled local staff have long-established networks and suppliers, and are supported by decades of experience. This means that we’re able to buy the healthiest and most robust trees at the most affordable price, making sure that your donations have the maximum impact.
This Ramadan, plant a blessed olive tree in Palestine, help to sustain a vulnerable family’s livelihood, and reap the multiplied blessings of the holy month through this beautiful, long-lasting charity.
