Olive Tree Project
The Olive Tree Project is just one of our many sustainable projects which allows beneficiaries to become self-sufficient in the long term. GRF works with local Palestinian farmers in Gaza to plant these blessed trees in order to earn a living, allowing farmers to harvest the fruit and produce and sell olive oil year after year. Eventually if enough people donate, they will no longer require our support as they will be able to generate an income independently.
Olives have long been revered in Islam and are even mentioned in the Holy Quran several times. The messenger of Allah (PBUH) reiterated their importance by instructing us to consume the oil and apply it to our skin.
Since olive trees grow for decades and continue yielding produce every year, you will be continuously assisting local Palestinian farmers to support their families. This act of Sadaqah Jariyah can bring you and a loved one endless blessings and rewards, even if they have passed away.
The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said;
“If a Muslim plants a tree or sows seeds, and then a bird, a person or an animal eats from it, it is regarded as a charitable gift for him.”
