Plant a Tree
Olive trees are symbolic of Palestinians’ identity and attachment to their land, resistance and resilience.
Olives are also the main financial source of income for around 80,000 Palestinian families.
According to UN figures, Olive trees account for 70% of fruit production in Palestine and contribute around 14% to the Palestinian economy.
In South Africa, trees also play a crucial role in providing a range of products and services to rural areas, including food, timber and fibre. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) is reported to have said, “Whenever Muslims plant a tree, they will earn the reward of charity because of the food that comes from it; and likewise what is stolen from it, what the wild beasts eat out of it, what the birds eat out of it, and what people take from it is charity for them” (Muslim)
