    KIAMBANS TO LAUNCH WORLDWIDE “PLANT AND NURTURE A TREE CHALLENGE” (Phils)

     

    August 24, 2014

     


    Inspired by the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge which has gone viral, Kiambans thought about taking the challenge to greater heights by asking people to plant trees instead.

     

    “ This is to bring more awareness of the need to preserve and protect the environment for the future generations. I see this challenge going viral too. We urge all people worldwide to join this challenge. Just imagine a world with more trees planted and nurtured by everyone. We see a better future ahead with everyone getting involved,” Dr. Renato de la Cruz KSDFI President said.

     

    “ Families will plant twice the number of members in a family or thrice the number of members in an organization,” KSDFI Chairman Dr. Agnes Quinto Sinocruz announced. “ For a more personal touch, trees will be named after family/group members. This will be a whole lot of fun!

     

    Kiamba is a beautiful small town in Sarangani Philippines where the environment is under threat due to proliferation of mining applications, illegal logging, years of neglect and poverty.
