World Environment Day, 2018

SMRU held several activities for World Environment Day 2018 – largely centered around Kokko TB and METF offices/clinics.

Over the last several decades there has been much deforestation in this part of Eastern Karen State and this day provided an opportunity to put a little green back into the landscape. SMRU and Border Health Foundation team members donated plants and trees for planting.

The greenery made the migration across the river and was enthusiastically planted in Karen soil by event participants.
