Gaza Agriculture: Restoring Farmland in Khan Younis

Posted in: ,

Gaza agriculture was deeply impacted by Israeli bombing in 2014. Many fields – more than 42,000 acres of Gaza agricultural land – were destroyed, and others lay fallow due to lack of resources.

Anera’s Gaza Land Restoration project aims to help Gaza farmers reclaim their land, grow new crops and prepare food to sell at the market.

Meet Abed Saleh Laham and his large family, one of 120 farming families supported by our donors. Abed has been a farmer for the past 70 years, and his family of some 70 people are finally able to successfully restore their land and livelihood.
