Planting Hope in Beit Ummar - Hebron Scores of volunteers have planted fruit tree saplings in the Palestinian village of Beit Ummar north of Hebron in the Occupied West Bank. The planting of 2230 saplings was made in line with APN’s campaign slogan ‘they uproot one tree, we replant ten’ and came as part of continued efforts to help Palestinian farmers hold on to their lands in the face of threats of confiscation by Israeli occupation authorities.

 

The cultivation of trees will also create income sources for residents of the area by growing a variety of fruit trees including different types of grapes in addition to peach, pear, apricot and quince trees. The voluntary activity was financed by APN and Radio Hayat FM listeners in Jordan in cooperation with the Palestinian Centre for Freedom and Justice and the Palestinian Voluntary Work Committee.
