Palestine Westbank

The Palestine-Westbank program is in its third phase.  The successes achieved in the 2nd phase and the continued need in the area of this project has encouraged MCC to fund another phase of programming with a new group of participants.  The program addresses the scarcity of water due to conflict and climatic conditions.  As participants depend on collecting rainwater in cisterns for agricultural and domestic use the program assists participants in establishing permanent sources of water by drilling cisterns.  It also provides training on water resource maintenance and home gardening techniques for the production of vegetables, grapes, olives, and almonds for consumption, processing and marketing.
