|Sixty baby trees finding a new home|
Instead, they are rolling up their sleeves and planting trees. The trees may be little seedlings at this point, but some day they will be an aesthetic delight and provide welcome shade as they mark the perimeters of the property surrounding the Sinkhani community center.
With 97% of the country using charcoal (a wood product) for cooking and heating, deforestation has been occurring so rapidly that flooding, soil erosion and ultimately water shortages have became common place. In 2017, the government began deploying soldiers to protect the forests and also implemented a plan for long-term reforestation. The Sinkhani share the government's concern and are stepping up to do their part. They're doers!
Why wait for decisions to be made on high when something tangible can be done today? Because of their concern, 60 baby trees are now enjoying the loving care and nurturing of the Sinkhani health workers.
