Youth Rehabilitation and Empowerment Network (YOREN) have organised an environmental management initiative activity of tree planting in Blantyre.
YOREN Eastern Region Coordination, Aubrey Mathyola, said the activity is a solution to effects of global warming that has greatly hit the world resulting to natural disasters such as: hunger, floods among others.
The tree planting initiative is expected to roll out on Monday 28 December in collaboration with Blantyre Water board along the Mudi River.
“As youth we are desperately and tirelessly working against effects of global warming through replenishment of natural trees that have a greater potential of absorbing water such as M’bawa, Thanga thanga among others,” Mathyola explained.
