Kingdom Exim Group Limited, a leading Ghanaian agro-based company, has supported President Nana Akufo-Addo’s ambitious afforestation project, the Green Ghana Day.
The company has provided several tree seedlings and mobilized individuals for a tree-planting exercise at Ashaiman in the Greater Accra Region.
Kingdom Exim undertook the tree planting exercise in collaboration with Prohumane Afrique International, and the Ghana Society of the Physically Disabled.
Joining the tree planting exercise was the Member of Parliament for Ashaiman Constituency, the Ashiaman Chief, MCE, officials of NADMO, Social Welfare, Ghana Police Service, among others.
There were volunteers and disabled persons who also joined the tree planting exercise aimed at greening Ghana and restoring the country’s lost forest cover.
Recently, Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, Samuel Abu Jinapor, says Ghana has lost about 80% of its forest cover due largely to human activities.
Kingdom Exim is therefore taking steps to help in restoring the country’s forest cover the best way possible.
The company involved disabled persons in the tree planting exercise because it felt they were being left out in a lot of national projects.
