Tree seedlings for farmers in the northern West Bank
Islamic Relief distributed 8000 olive tree seedlings and 500 lemon and fig tree seedlings to farmers benefiting from the Land Development Project.
The Land Development Project has aimed at increasing the income of small farmers, helping them to secure sustainable livelihoods and become self-reliant. Throughout the life of this project, Islamic Relief has funded the rehabilitation of 500 dunums of agricultural land, the construction of 5.5 kilometers of agricultural roads, and the building of 100 rain water collection cisterns.
The project supported 100 families with the rehabilitation of 5 dunums of agricultural land, which included the use of heavy equipment to break rocks and clear the land and the construction of terraces. It also helped them with the construction of 55 cubic meter water collection cisterns and provided them with tree seedlings.
