Plant trees, save lives!
Posted on July 11, 2023 under News
UMN’s team in Bajhang have planted 1400 tree saplings of various species in a 5,450-meter square area on Monday July 3. Following a mesh wire fencing of the area in collaboration with Thalara Rural Municipality Ward- 4, the team then proceeded with the plantation together with the Division Forest Office.
Two years ago, 23 local people were buried and sadly killed in a landslide in this area also damaging livelihood options and properties. This activity was carried out by UMN’s Disaster Risk Management project together with local partner Progressive Youth Society to prevent landslide by stabilising the soil. It received much appreciation and active participation from the local communities.
