Plant an Olive Tree in Palestine
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)
£20 will provide a Palestinian family with two olive trees, ensuring they reap the fruit of the olive tree for years to come.
Olives are considered a blessed fruit in Islam. They are mentioned seven times in the Quran, and the Prophet (PBUH) instructed us to use olive oil on our hair and skin.
In 2020, we’re working to provide 545 farmers with 40 olive trees each, allowing them to restore one dunum (roughly 1 km²) of land. Through this project, which benefits 5,190 people, we’ll be planting 24,376 olives, providing over 5,000 hours of work to local labourers, and we’ll be training 90 women in the production of olive-based items such as soap.
Lay down the roots of a beautiful, sustainable, charity in Palestine today, and provide a vulnerable family with a Sadaqah Jariyah.
Plant an olive tree in Palestine and help to lift a vulnerable family out of poverty.
