Olive trees are ancient symbols of peace and a basic source of
livelihood and nutrition across the Mediterranean Basin. Palestinian
farmers have seen their mature trees—some thousands of years
old—uprooted from their own land, burned and destroyed, depriving them
of their income and traditional way of life. Help the East Jerusalem
YMCA and YWCA of Palestine replenish the orchards of affected farmers
by reaching their goal of replanting 25,000 new olive trees each year.
* Please note: Donations are still being accepted for the
Olive Tree Campaign. The olive tree planting will be scaled back to
15000 trees this season, planted in the West Bank by Palestinian farmers.
