Khushhali Microfinance Bank (KMBL) is proudly celebrating the World Environment Day 2021 this Saturday, with a tree plantation drive to be held in Peshawar, in association with the Provincial Housing Authority (PHA) Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

The plantation drive, an attempt to encourage a Clean, Green, and Khushhal Pakistan, will be attended by volunteers from Khushhali Microfinance Bank, PHA and the local community, who will participate in planting hundreds of saplings in the city.

The event will follow the international theme for this year’s World Environment Day, ‘Ecosystem Restoration’, and has been organized to raise awareness among the masses and encourage efforts on a national level for environmental restoration and protection.

Talking about the bank’s latest CSR endeavor, CEO Khushhali Microfinance Bank Mr. Ghalib Nishtar said, “It is our individual, as well as collective duty, to make adequate joint efforts to help rehabilitate and protect our environment, and do our part in healing this ailing planet.

In support of the Government of Pakistan’s 10 Billion Tree Tsunami initiative, KMBL is a proud contributor towards the plantation of hundreds of saplings, and vows to continue its efforts towards a cleaner, greener Pakistan.”

Pakistan has been declared an official host of the World Environment Day 2021, which also sees the launch of the United Nation’s Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, and calls for the commitment of the masses to protect the ecosystems that support the lives and livelihoods of millions of people globally.

Khushhali Microfinance Bank has been a huge environment-preservation enthusiast and has engaged in a series of such initiatives over a period of years, including tree plantation drives, initiatives in wildlife parks, awareness-raising programs and the sponsorship of campsites for children in Islamabad.
