Environmental Rehabilitation in the Dru-gu region.

Reforestation, planting and a wildlife protection program are part of our efforts to restore the once beautifully wooded wildlife habitat of Dru-gu region. New trees, gardens, and other natural plantings are being introduced. Once in place, the initial cost of maintaining these plantings will be approximately $113.00 (US) a month, $1,356.00 (US) annually; this will pay for the salaries of two 'landscape attendants'. Because uninterrupted care is essential for successful establishment of new vegetation, this project benefits greatly from a long-term commitment of financial aid.
