Fund Donation: SUPPORTING PALESTINIAN ARTISANS DURING THE COVID PANDEMIC
The COVID Crisis has impacted many artisan communities around the world. One of them being the Holy Land Handicraft Cooperative Society in Bethlehem, Palestine, which has been under lockdown since March 5th, 2020. The lockdown has created devastating financial losses and instability to the livelihoods of the artisans who create handicrafts made from the region’s natural resources.
Handicrafts create a stronger connection with Palestine’s culture and identity. In Bethlehem, tourism is a major source of income and handiwork helps promote it and decrease unemployment. The Holy Land Handicraft Cooperative Society has made essential purchases as they were expecting to make income this summer out of tourism, but because of COVID, they won’t be able to make those payments.
The artisans that work with Holy Land Handicrafts desire to keep their creative work alive for multiple generations and with your help, they can receive the financial support they need to continue creating handicrafts.*Due to the artisanal nature of this product, color and size may vary.
