Humans might not be present if there were no trees. Trees are a crucial need for every species to survive on this planet. They can also be termed as the most bountiful favors of nature bestowed not just on mankind but all kinds of species living on earth. To protect and preserve plants and trees in our natural environment is every individual’s duty and the need of the hour. To protect our future and strengthen our communities we all individually as well as collectively need to make certain actions to cultivate more and more plants and meanwhile ensure the safety of ones we already have. Trees are the ones that absorb the filthy elements present in the air while providing cleansed air for people to gasp in. A stable and strong tree generates as much oxygen in one season as 10 individuals inhale in a year. Planting trees can be one of the major ways to battle climate changes, preserve nature, and combat nearly 40% of noise pollution. Planting trees is so beneficial
Laying the emphasis on industrial upgrading for a long time Pakistan has neglected its ecological persistence. Clearing of land for the basis of building dams and barrages to meet the water needs of the masses, most of the forest land has been emptied. Moreover, the trend of cutting down trees for setting up factories and other modern housing societies, transforming forest lands into urban lands has made Pakistan encounter many hazardous ecological events such as floods, land sliding, soil erosion, and much more. Playing the major impact on the climate. Now fortunately Pakistan has realized its poor choices and the long-term disadvantages it has caused to the country, finally they have started taking steps for planting more and more trees.
This year I got a chance to volunteer in an activity via the MilKar platform and through it, I worked with Alkhidmat Foundation Pakistan, where masses from across the nation pitch in their efforts in making Pakistan’s environment clean and fresh for the new generations. We planted trees which in itself are a good cause but working with organizations whose motive is only making Pakistan healthy and greener for all made me gratified of myself that in coming few years I can proudly say that I was part of an initiative where I did my bit and planted a tree for our future generations. MilKar used its platform to aware the population and urge them to partake in the plantation program. As their acts of today will significantly impact in building a better tomorrow.
Every now and then several different organizations, be it non-government or government conducts plantation campaigns in the country and numerous people take initiative to participate in it and help improve our environment. Likewise, ‘MilKar” an organization that works on a Uber model where there is a supplier and demand side, making it mainly focused on organizations and volunteers or the voluntary work done by them, MilKar works as a bridge and collaborates with companies, organizations, volunteers, students or institutes, etc. Anyone who wants to provide for social cause and works for the betterment of the society on a wider scale, what social work/caused organizations are doing must be acknowledged and platforms like MilKar should be promoted for the good work they do.
