Archbishop Martin Kivuva of Mombasa in Kenya has led hundreds of Loreto convent school children and their teachers in planting over 1000 trees in Pope Francis forest.
Archbishop Martin Kivuva of Mombasa in Kenya has led hundreds of Loreto convent school children and their teachers in planting over 1000 trees at the convent’ school grounds now re-named “Pope Francis forest.”
“We are naming this forest, ‘Pope Francis forest’ in honour of the Pope who has a great desire to see that Gods creation is taken care of and has a great affection for the environment,” the school head, Sr. Gertrude Mallya, IBVM, told Archbishop Kivuva.
The tree planting exercise was organised to coincide with Environment Day that was commemorated last week.
‘In the book of Genesis, God created human beings and told them to be caretakers of creation. Pope Francis always reminds us to care for the environment,” Archbishop Kivuva told the children and their teachers.
Samaritan’s Purse, a humanitarian aid organisation, donated the trees.
