For £8 you can plant an Olive Tree in Gaza, Palestine.
Symbols of Palestine, olive trees can last for around 1,000 years and are a primary source of income for around 80,000 Palestinian families. But unfortunately, the progressing conflict and illegal settlement in the region have led to the uprooting of 2.5 million trees since 1967 - one-third of which are olive trees.
Olives are also considered a blessed fruit in Islam and have been mentioned several times both in the Quran and Hadith:
“And a tree (olive) that springs forth from Mount Sinai, that grows oil, and (it is a) relish for the eaters.” [Surah al-Muminoon 23:20].
Al Mustafa Welfare Trust has been working in Palestine since 2013 and supporting orphans, providing health care, helping with family food pack, emergency relief pack and through planting olive tree we are changing lives for the better.
Our goal is to plant 10,000 olive trees in the next two years for the people of Gaza. With only a small donation of just £8 you can be a part of a big change.
