Project Report | Nov 23, 2023
Moving on to the next chapter... [Karama's New Emergency Plans]

By Karama | Team

Dear readers, 

 

We hope this message finds you well. In these extreme challenging times for the Palestinian community, we want to update you that this project [the Rooftop Micro Farms for Refugee Women in Deheishe] will be closing its fundraising page to make space for new fundraising activities from Karama.

For almost 10 years, Karama has actively built, taught and picked the fruits from their green spaces among concrete walls. Over 400 women in five refugee camps have been trained and have received the tools to grow fresh produce on their own roofs. This has not only lifted their moods but also filled their bellies - and that of their households.

With your support, trainings could continue, supervision visits from amazing female agricultural experts were done and extra workshops around fertilizing innovations were given. Now women continue to grow and plant themselves, often meetings for tea and conversation between their plants. 

We are so proud to have been able to do this journey with you all. Karama has seen this idea spreading to more refugee camps not only on the West Bank, but as far as Lebanon, Jordan and Uganda. All locations were long-term displacement create frustration, but we are seeking ways to grow hope. 

 

Karama trust you will continue to support the Palestinian people and support our calls for safety and dignity. 

Any donors who signed up for monhtly donations will automatically be transferred to Karama's other fundraising pages, in particulair the page fundraising for Karama's current Cash-for-Work program. 

 

With thanks, 

Karama's team.
