As part of our renewable environmental and beautification programs, over 20 Sterling5 Foundation volunteers have planted 130+ plants in a single day in the village of Chityala, Nalgonda, Telangana, India. Which is located on dry lands of Deccan plateau. These plants are expected to grow into trees in couple of years. This will give much needed shade to people and animals in the village, bring the soaring summer temperatures down, possible improvement in rainfalls to solve the drought issues, help global warming problem, and over all better environment.
This also fits in well with the Telangana state governments Haritha Haram program of planting 2.3 Billion saplings in four years.
A refugee life is always one of marginalization, hardship, and fear. But when the refugee is a child, the marginalization is amplified manifolds. Not only does the child face geopolitical atrocities and a childhood stolen, there are few places worse for a child than a refugee camp. While the lives of refugee children are saved when in these camps, they are deprived of their basic human necessities that enable their physical, emotional, and psychological development. The Rohingya children are living proof of that.
The influx of Rohingya refugees in Cox's Bazar of Bangladesh has left humanitarian workers therein short-staffed and under-resourced. While the governmental and non-governmental organizations are trying their best to provide the basic necessities of life for the refugees, they are often falling short to ensure a decent quality of life.
