Palestinian Farmers Embody the Spirit of Earth Day

Posted in: 

For Earth Day 2017, we caught up with Dr. Mansour, a Palestinian medical doctor and farmer who was part of Anera’s agricultural knowledge sharing program. Using the skills he learned, he and his sister Ni’ma lovingly tend to their farm in Beit Duqo, West Bank.

With a bunch of yellow roses in his hand, Dr. Mansour beams. “When I visit the land, it usually gives me a gift. This is a gift of today. Our feet are planted in this land. The land gives to the one who loves it and works on it.”
