Water & Trees for Mar Saba
Mar Saba is an ancient home for Christians, a monastery run by the Greek Orthodox Church. Situated in the desert between Jerusalem and the Dead Sea. It is now facing difficulties regarding water supply, source of income and other hardships.
Living conditions are rough and water scares. The water supply is frequently sabotaged. The project for water and trees in Mar Saba aims to resolve the water supply situation and to re-forest the area surrounding the monastery. The future forest will create a source of income through the production of highly valued incense.
