Supporting Nablus

Nablus is the commercial centre of Palestine and is a focus for education and agriculture.  Its economy has been hit by over 50 years of military occupation.  The people are amazing but are limited by constraints of travel, trade and freedom.  They struggle on with enthusiasm and fortitude.  We help by supporting education and agriculture.

FONSA strategic priorities

General fund

Nablus often has immediate needs which this fund lets us support.  We also use it for our priorities such as supporting students who cannot afford their tuition fees.

Nurses and Midwives

Medical treatment depends on qualified staff.  We help to train nurses and midwives so the people of Nablus can have world-class medical services.

Planting Olive Trees

Olive trees are the source of food and finance for many families.  The land they grow on is at risk of being stolen.  Our trees support life.
