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)
Give €15, and provide a Palestinian family with an olive tree, ensuring they reap the fruit of the olive for years to come.
Or for €30 you can plant 2 olive trees for you and a loved one.
When you donate your olive tree with Human Appeal, we don’t simply provide seeds to farmers, we deliver healthy trees – around 1.6 to 2 metres in height and at least 3 years old, that are already producing fruit. We help the farmers to plant their trees and are there to support them along the way.
Each farming family that we help will receive 30-40 trees, supporting their livelihood of growing and selling olives for profit. An average mature olive tree produces 15 to 20 kilograms of olives per year.
Your tree will be given to the farming family most in need in Gaza, Jerusalem, or the West Bank.
Olive trees – the gift of endless rewards
Since the tree you donate will provide olives for years to come, this project is a Sadaqah Jariyah, providing endless blessings, even after you are gone.
This Ramadan, show you care by gifting this thoughtful, blessed charity to your loved one. Donate an olive tree in their name, and we’ll send you a gift certificate to pass on to your loved one as a memorable gesture for your thoughtful gift within 2 – 4 weeks of donating.
Why give olive trees through Human Appeal?
We’ve been working in Palestine for 30 years. Since beginning our olive tree project in 2006, we’ve helped vulnerable Palestinian farmers to plant 50,000 trees, allowing them to restore uprooted and damaged land, and to sustain their livelihoods in the face of persecution.
Our skilled local staff have long-established networks and suppliers and are supported by decades of experience. This means that we’re able to buy the healthiest and most robust trees at the most affordable price, making sure that your donations have the maximum impact.
Olives are mentioned seven times in the Quran, and the Prophet (PBUH) instructed us to use olive oil on our hair and skin.
This Ramadan, plant a blessed olive tree in the holy land of Palestine, support a vulnerable family and reap the multiplied blessings of the holy month through this beautiful, long-lasting charity.
