A TIME TO CARE MOTHER EARTH.
ICC Philippines Foundation( ICCPF) Orphan Care Facility administrator Lorcel Faigao went to Department of Environment and Natural Resources( DENR) Region 3 Office to ask assistance of our tree planting program. We were given 100 seedlings of Cupang and other fruit trees. We also bought Mahogany seedlings from nearby supplier.
Last September 2, 2016 ICCP staff and ICC Happy Valley Elementary School (ICCHVES) planted all the seedlings after two weeks of raining and flooding. The teachers carefully instructed the children on the proper way of planting. The students learned how to care for the environment through tree planting and understand that this is a big help to lessen the soil erosion and flood. The trees should be cared; it is a natural protection against unexpected disaster.
The place of ICCP is a flooded area every Habagat rainy season. It might because of the abused of the people by uncontrolled cutting the trees for charcoal and did not plant for replacement. Now, we are calling all people not only in our place but to all Filipinos to plant more trees. firstname.lastname@example.org
