Received this mail about a great initiative – do pitch in for your areas!
The Government Civil Defense department (the dept. which runs the area Surakasha Mita scheme) has requested our support for a tree-planting drive set-to kick off this month.
The group Hasiru Usiru is set to help them in their ambitious plan to plant 50,000 saplings. The planting will happen in the next couple of weeks since the roots of tree saplings register MAXIMUM growth during end June to mid September.
We need volunteers to help in this drive. If you are interested, please contact Sheshadri – 98455 68182, firstname.lastname@example.org or Santosh Min – 99860 37010 , email@example.com
