“Rasulullah (SAW) said "If a Muslim plants a tree or sows seeds, and then a bird or a person or an animal eats from it, it is regarded as a charitable gift for him" Al-Bukhari
Give £20, and provide a Palestinian family with two young olive trees, ensuring they reap the fruit of the blessed olive for years to come.
It’s no wonder the Messenger (PBUH) labelled olive trees as blessed; they produce beautiful and nourishing fruits, and they’re mentioned seven times in the Quran.
Donate a pair of olive trees in Palestine, and reap the ongoing blessings of this Sadaqah Jariyah – which will benefit a vulnerable family, and you, for years to come.
Since beginning our olive tree project in 2006, we’ve helped vulnerable Palestinian farmers to plant 50,000 trees so far, allowing them to restore uprooted and damaged land, and to sustain their livelihoods in the face of persecution.
We’re about to distribute more olive trees in the coming weeks, so give your donation today and plant the seeds of hope in Palestine.
A symbol of hope and identity
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.
How the project works
In 2020, we’re working to plant a massive 24,376 olive trees.
A total of 545 farmers will each receive 40 olive trees, which can produce up to four tonnes of olives. This project will also provide over 5,000 hours of work to local labourers, and train 90 women in the production of olive-based items such as soap.
We distribute olive trees twice a year, during the planting seasons. Since we provide saplings, the trees usually start to produce olives in 3-5 years.
Olive trees – the gift of endless rewards
Gift this thoughtful, blessed charity to your loved one for a special occasion. Donate two olive trees in their name, and we’ll give a personalised gift certificate to present to them.
Why give through Human Appeal?
We’ve been working in Palestine for over 20 years. 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 olive trees at a fair, affordable price from local growers, ensuring your donations have the maximum impact.
For just £20, you can plant two blessed olive trees in Palestine, help to sustain a vulnerable family’s livelihood, and reap endless blessings through this beautiful, long-lasting charity.
