Donations in Action – Mango trees, Cambodia

Cambodia`s vegetation cover has been reduced by logging and deforestation over the last thirty years. The aim of the tree planting activities is to contribute to the reduction of climate change, offset the summer heat by providing some shade and the environmental impact on soil erosion during the wet season if there is inadequate vegetation. Public tree planting is a focus in village communities – inside the school campus, on public land and along the roadsides. From public tree planting projects, communities will be encouraged to love the trees and forest and understand and learn the value of forests and vegetation.

“ChildFund has started working in my village and provided household latrines to families, school kits to students and celebrated International children`s day. And today ChildFund provided Mango tree to my family, I will grow it near the well in my household land. I think that, the mango tree not only provides shade in my villages, but it will also provide fruit that can be used as food as well; and I feel happy that ChildFund provided mango trees to community household in my village.”
