Ghousta suffers from a shortage of water for irrigation. A water tank will alleviate this issue. Ghousta has already benefitted from donations worth over $80,000 from companies, the local convents and local people. These allowed them to implement stages A and B of the project – reclaiming the land by building new terraces, and planting it with orange and kiwi trees. They are seeking SEAL’s support to implement stage C of the project – assuring a steady water supply.
