Olive trees are the basic source of livelihood and nutrition across
the Mediterranean basin. They are also an ancient symbol of peace.
Palestinian farmers have seen their mature trees uprooted, burned and
destroyed, depriving them of their income and their traditional way of
life. Many of the trees are hundreds and even thousands of years old.
You can help the East Jerusalem YMCA and YWCA of Palestine reach their
goal of replanting 8000 new olive trees each year, replenishing the
orchards of affected farmers.
