How we do it

What is a food system?

Support women farmers in Gaza


Women Owned Farms

in Gaza

For beekeepers like Samar Al-Baa and rabbit farmers like Rheem Irhim, their farms and farming practices represent not only economic empowerment but food security for the local Palestinian population. Providing residents with nutritious, locally grown food, these women farmers contribute substantially to the food systems and resilience of Palestine’s population. But in May 2021, the densely populated Gaza strip experienced eleven days of devastating and sustained bombing. More than 50% of the women’s farms were damaged or completely destroyed.

Restoring their farms and food sovereignty

This is powerful & important work.
We can only do it together.
