MCC helps Palestinian farmers cope with land seizures

Musa Taha, a Palestinian farmer northwest of Jerusalem, lost most of his farmland last year when the Israeli military confiscated it to construct part of a system of walls and fences that cuts through the occupied Palestinian territories. He is one of 43 Palestinian farmers who received vegetable seedlings through a project supported by MCC, in partnership with Palestinian organizations. The project is intended to help farmers cope with losing land seized by Israel.
