100 trees have been donated by Mellieħa Local Councillor Ivan Catillo to NGO GHKNK and are set to be planted this Sunday in l-Aħrax tal -Mellieħa.
The initiative forms part of an event ‘Ingawduh u Nieħdu Ħsiebu Flimkien’ organised by the NGO to create awareness of the work they do for the environment.
Mr Castillo emphasised on enforcement in the area, and other forested areas in Mellieħa and Malta. Castillo said that the fire in Miżieb last year and the other one which hit the same area last week compelled him to do something about it in the hope that others follow suit.
Those interested in planting a tree in their name for FREE next Sunday can do so in l-Aħrax tal-Mellieħa.
