13th January 2023, Bengaluru: Aster RV Hospital in association with an NGO called Fuziho, Bengaluru planted 150 saplings with the support of 50 Aster volunteers Thattekere village near Bannerghatta as part of a tree planting drive. Taking controlled measures is essential given the kind of environmental risks the city faces. By absorbing harmful gases and producing oxygen, trees help to clean the air.
The hospital personnel, Aster volunteers and Fuziho joyfully assisted one another in planting the trees as part of the effort. Additionally, they promised to take care of the newly planted trees by maintaining and monitoring the plants.
Dr Prasanth, CEO of Aster RV Hospital stated “Humans have caused significant obliteration by prioritizing urbanization. “Therefore, preserving the environment is necessary for us, and it should be the central objective for the new generations. Compassion is building a green and sustainable planet. This tree planting drive is our humble attempt to celebrate our nature while reducing our carbon footprint and reinforcing our city folk’s sense of obligation to keep the neighborhood clean and green.”
“Tree plantation is not just something that should be done; instead, it is a necessity, the urgent need of the hour. Planting trees is especially important to protect our environment against air pollution and global warming. To this end, our Aster volunteers have been actively involved in organizing tree plantation campaigns,” stated Mr. Rohan, CSSR Head, Aster RV Hospital.
