Tree Plantation Campaign by Baba Ram Rahim Followers
Planting 7,38,530 trees in a single day as a part of Mega Tree Plantation Campaign is a big feat. These days, all that we hear about is deforestation, flooding, wildfires and how the man himself has brought the fury of Nature on Himself. Let us also discuss how this campaign was performed successfully by Baba Ram Rahim supporters.
But knowing that there are people who are dedicated to reverse the deforestation feels good and revives hope. If there is one thing that the whole world needs more of, it is indeed tree plantation. We all know the importance of trees and our future depends on them.
