The Rotary Club of Imphal handed over covid-19 relief materials to the village chief of Sinam Kom.
The Rotary Club of Imphal on Saturday planted 215 fruit trees and 60 avenue trees during a tree plantation programme at Sinam Kom village.
The tree plantation programme was organised under the theme ‘Save Mother Earth’.
The Rotary Foundation Trustees and the Rotary International Board of Directors voted unanimously to approve the Environment as the seventh Area of Focus in June, 2020, president of the club Devkumar Thoudam stated in a release.
"Saving the environment has become an important issue to address worldwide and Rotary Club of Imphal is contributing its bit by planting trees and spreading the message across the state every year," the president stated.
Thoudam also appealed to everyone to plant more trees as trees provide oxygen, reduce water run-off thereby reducing soil erosion, pollution and effects of flooding.
The club also handed over covid-19 relief materials to the village chief of Sinam Kom and requested villagers to get Covid 19 vaccination at the earliest to protect themselves.
