How the employee got involved and why

2015 & 2016 I have started to notice that our authentic forests had been increasingly suffering. Besides climate change, there had been growing national neglect and lack of appreciation for our little green treasure. Even our 2000 year old iconic trees were not spared, many old trees ended up being firewood. I stood up for our trees. I have started planting Cypress, Pine and Carob trees in order to help mend damaged forests. No matter how many trees been planted, I believe that every tree would provide life in a way or another. After facing logistical difficulties secondary to the lack of continuity of care for the trees, in such remote forests. This led me to search for small farmers who could not afford buying their own trees but were committed to maintain them. I raised money to give them fruit trees, and helped them planting those fresh trees.

What work does the employee do for charity?

I conduct campaigns of reforestation and voluntary trees distribution. I organise it all, starting with fundraising until the implanting.

What impact would winning have on the charity?

Winning, will help spreading awareness in the community towards increasing the green area in Jordan. It will encouraging donors to donate and get involved in an accelerated manner and root more farmers on their land. Additionally, I hope that winning the DHL Got Heart competition, will help promoting Non-GMO food products and will Will reduce the impact of food-market monopoly, through supporting small farmers.

What impact would winning have on the employee?

Winning is a keyword in my life, it will boost my self-esteem to a greater amount than ever, and I will use the prize Wisley and make a small forest of it :-)
