Navjyoti Center has been celebrating World Environment Day on June 5 every year. Due to the lockdown caused by COVID-19 it was impossible to gather the beneficiaries in one place.
Keeping in mind the present situation, Navjyoti decided to help migrants living in quarantine camps. 300 cotton masks, 250 sanitizers, and 250 soaps were handed over to the deputy mayor by Sister Rosita in the municipality office. Other NGO representatives as well as officials of the Birendranagar municipality were present on the occasion.
These materials were to be used for those in quarantine in three places of ward No 11, 4, and 2 to improve their sanitary condition. Due to the incessant rains, Navjyoti organized a tree plantation in ward No. 11 where Navjyoti has been conducting training on kitchen gardens.
260 plants were distributed. They were 52 mango saplings, 26 gooseberry, 26 cinnamon plants, and 156 melia trees used for fodder. They were distributed to 26 farmers who are part of the IPM program funded by Caritas Nepal.
