Lebanon’s Dar al-Fatwa
On 9/12/2017, APN co-founders Hassan Al Jaajaa and Razan Zuayter were invited to Lebanon’s Dar al Fatwa by its General Manager Mr. Hassan Freiji.
The purpose of the visit was to look into potential collaboration between Dar Al Fatwa’s Charity Fund that serves to support the Palestinian people, and APN which serves the same goal.
The two parties introduced their respective organizations and looked into cooperation in 2018, whereby the Fund will allocate some of its proceeds to plant 10,000 olive trees in Palestine. This will fall under APN’s Million Tree Campaign that is on its way to surpassing the 3 million mark.
