APN seeks to strengthen the capacity of the Arab peoples to sustain the region's natural resources and gain sovereignty over them , particularly in areas suffering from war and occupation.
Rehabilitation of Gaza Greenhouses
The campaign assisted 38 male and female farmers in Al Braij (6 farmers), Beit Hanoun (10) and Beit Lahya (22).
The donation granted by APN contributed to saving 125 dunums of agricultural land from aridification through the planting of fruit and vegetable seedlings. The rehabilitation included reinstallation and repair of irrigation networks destroyed during recurrent Israeli incursions on agricultural lands that provide income to 20 Palestinian families as their sole livelihood.
This collaboration between APN and AUWC, in line with APN's mission, considers overstrained farmers in Palestine one of its target categories and seeks to mitigate the suffering they endure under occupation.
