Another message to our friends
in the midst of the COVID-19 Crisis


Salaam,
from the farmers, women's cooperatives and staff of the Palestine Fair Trade Association

We are thinking of you around the world 
as we all cope with Covid-19    Like Coronavirus in Palestine on Facebook

In Palestine, we have flattened the curve of infections in most areas.  We are responding quickly to regional surges like Al-Khalil (Hebron).  Here in Jenin, we work to assure the health and well-being of all members of our communities.

At the PFTA we are mostly working from home.  Agricultural extensionists make only essential visits to farms, wearing masks and social distancing, of course. Farmers and co-op members work alone more than usual.  Caring for our families, communities, and land is a priority, always.

To our friends near and far:  When it is safe to travel, we look forward to welcoming you to the farming communities where you contribute so significantly.  We are praying for you.  May you and those you love stay strong, safe, and well, inshallah
