​Bees give hope to Palestinian women

2016-10-11 L’Osservatore Romano

On the West Bank, near Ramallah, honey production has become one of the basic economic resources for a group of women. It is an important support for the Palestinian Territories where one person in four is unemployed. The project is backed by the Palestinian Union of Agricultural Work Committees (uawc) which helps 103 women to manage farming enterprises in the West Bank and in the Gaza Strip.
