Youth Voluntary Services Bangladesh and Asiya-Kashem Trust have jointly inaugurated “Prokritir Mayay Bonayon Kormosuchi 2020” by planting 10,000 saplings in the Chakaria upazila of Cox’s Bazar.  

As chief guest, Chakaria Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO) Syed Shamsul Tabriz inaugurated the tree plantation program in the Magnama Para area under Badarkhali union of the upazila on Saturday.

The UNO said the whole world is upset by the effects of climate variability. Furthermore, he called upon the youth and the educated community to come forward in such tree planting programs.

Among the other special guests, Ashfaque Ahmed Abir, co-founder of the Young Voluntary Services Bangladesh, said through a virtual presence: “Youth Voluntary Service Bangladesh is a voluntary platform work for social development led by the university students of Bangladesh. Youth Service Bangladesh will always be there for this kind of initiative.” 

Assistant Commissioner (Land) Tanveer Hossain said: “The importance of planting trees to protect against natural disasters is immense for us. Trees must not be cut down and the government will have zero tolerance for cutting down trees.”

"Their collaboration will stay solid for good causes in the future too," Chairman of Asiya-Kashem Trust Alhaj Abul Kashem added as a concluding note. 

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, a short program was organized maintaining Covid-19 health measures. 

Among other guests, Ragib Hassan, founder of Youth Express Bangladesh, honored the program with his presence. 

This plantation program was also supported by the student forum of Dhaka University students of Chakaria, Cox’s Bazar.
