Friends of Wadi Fuqeen
Working for a just and sustainable future for the Palestinian village of Wadi Fuqeen


Other groups and organisations working in this area

Wadi Fuqeen has featured in many fact-finding and solidarity visits in recent years,
involving Friends of Sabeel, World Vision and Experience Travel Tours.

In 2002, through 'Hope for the Wadi', a team of artists spent two weeks in the village
leading art therapy workshops for the schoolchildren.

Friends of the Earth Middle East (FoEME) has been monitoring the water situation in
the village for the last 18 months and facilitates mutual cooperation on environmental
issues with concerned citizens in neighbouring Tsoor Haddasa, on the Israeli side of
the 'Green Line', who support the campaign.

World Vision, Jerusalem (WVJ), and their West Bethlehem Area Development Project (ADP) have facilitated a number of projects, including a medical centre and a new kindergarten, opened in September 2003 - with funds from ECHO- the European Commission for Humanitarian Aid Office.

Norwegian People Aid provided the village with 160 sheep which have been distributed amongst the poorest families.
