Melkite Pastoral Center
The Melkite Pastoral Center was established in 1988 during the first Intifada (Palestinian uprising) in the city of Ramallah. The center gives income-generation opportunities through sewing and embroidery work to more than 180 women from 17 villages and 2 refugee camps in the central West Bank.
The products are inspired by traditional designs that decorate Palestinian women's dresses, and symbolically represent the hills, trees, and flowers of the country.
A Jerusalem-based non-profit fair-trade organization, Sunbula is a platform that empowers marginalized communities in the West Bank, Gaza, and Palestinian communities within Israel through traditional artisanal crafts.
