C-Care Uganda partnered with Tree Adoption Uganda and Bethany Land Institute as they jointly celebrated new life and preservation of nature. The celebrations happened at Bethany Land Institute in Luweero where 900 trees were planted as a result of the partnership.
These are planted on one acre of land to celebrate each of the 900 babies. These were delivered in C-Care clinics across the country in the last three months.
On top of celebrating this milestone, they also did this in an effort to restore the Lazarus Forest in Nandere, Luweero District.
This initiative is a tradition by C-Care that brings together its team and mothers to plant trees annually. These are planted in honor of each child born in the hospital countrywide.
“This initiative embodies the principles of sustainability and our profound concern for the well-being of our planet. With the arrival of each newborn at C-Care IHK, C-Care IMC Mukono, we plant a sapling. This symbolic act not only connects these children to nature but also underscores our unwavering commitment to environmental conservation,” said C-Care Uganda’s Chief Operating Officer, Azhar Sandhoo.
Janet Akuguzibwe, the Project Officer at Tree Adoption Uganda applauded the C-Care team for the initiative.
“It is a breath of fresh air to see a healthcare facility taking a front seat row in the fight against global climate change. I call upon all of us to emulate them because climate change affects all sectors of the economy, but planting a tree at a time will go a long way in preserving the environment,” Akugizibwe said.
Tree Adoption Uganda has acquired state-of-the-art technology it has implemented in its tree-growing program. It can now equip each tree planted with GPS coordinates, and this enables precise tracking of its growth and development.
The mothers and babies present were awarded special C-Care tree planting certificates.
