At this time 2000 olive trees are under orders to be uprooted in Wadi Kana, Palestine

Wadi Kana

For some of the farmers this is not the first time they are having trees uprooted, and it is becoming increasingly difficult for them to fund the replanting of their orchards.

There are ways to stop this happening, and we would love your support with that also. But today we want to offer an opportunity for positive action.

In the spirit of Gifts that Keep on Giving, we have set up a way to buy an olive tree on behalf of a friend or family member.

The trees will go to the farmers of Wadi Kana and we will inform your loved one that you have done this kind act on their behalf.
Naturally we will also let the farmers know that you have bought them a tree!

This is a great way to make a change in the world.

All the money raised will go directly to the farmers, SanghaSeva will cover all the fees transferring the money and will take no percentage.

To safely and securely buy an Olive tree for the farmers of Wadi Kana use the PayPal button here:

 
Send up to 60 Trees

 

 

 

 

After you buy the trees through PayPal you will be redirected to a page where you will fill out the card that will be sent to your loved one to let them know what you have done for them.

More Information:

The trees have been planted by farmers on their own lands in the area of Wadi Kana. This valley has been designated as a nature reserve by the Civil administration (The Israeli military-based administration of the Palestinian occupied territories). The farmers had no say in the creation of the nature reserve on their land; there was no process that took into account their needs.

The farmers have already passed the deadline of the order to uproot their own trees, now the Israeli army may come any day to uproot them and charge the farmers for the work carried out.

Meanwhile no action has been taken to remove 22 buildings of the illegal Jewish outpost of Alonei Shiloh all of which is entirely in the area of the nature reserve. In addition to this, 123 buildings from the neighbouring Jewish settlements are within the nature reserve. Some of these buildings have demolition orders, some even for some time, but no action has been taken.

It is appalling that the Civil administration is planning to enforce the uprooting of 2000 olive trees. This is an act of destruction with no consideration of the farmers hard work and the consequences to their livelihoods.
