1200 trees planted to mark national tree week

Over 50 members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) from Yorkshire have been braving the cold weather to join White Rose forest members to plant 1200 trees alongside local communities as a display of unity as part of National Tree Week.

Over six years AMYA UK has planted over 150,000 trees across the country to date.

Despite the cold weather we had a pleasant and friendly session with members of White Rose Forest and local communities. We are committed to doing our bit to improve the environment and beautify the local communities we live in. It is a cause close to our hearts because Islam places enormous emphasis on taking care of the environment and particularly on the planting of trees.
