KARACHI: Khush­hali Mi­cro­fi­nance Bank, the lead­ing mi­cro­fi­nance bank of Pak­istan, launched a na­tion-wide tree plan­ta­tion drive en­ti­tled "Plant Khush­hali" to help up­lift the nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment and work to­wards curb­ing cli­mate change.

As part of the drive, KMBL em­ploy­ees across the coun­try planted trees in their re­spec­tive lo­cal­i­ties with saplings of guavas, ja­mun, and lokath fruits. A tree sapling was pro­vided to all em­ploy­ees to plant in their homes or neigh­bor­hood parks to en­sure their growth into fruit-bear­ing trees.

KMBL Pres­i­dent, Ghalib Nishtar said about the drive, "In view of in­creas­ing ur­ban­iza­tion, it is the duty of re­spon­si­ble cor­po­ra­tions to ad­dress en­vi­ron­men­tal con­cerns by en­gag­ing in ini­tia­tives of this kind. We, at KMBL have ac­tively adopted green and sus­tain­able prac­tices to help build an en­vi­ron­men­tally-con­scious com­mu­nity all around and this plan­ta­tion drive is a re­flec­tion of that".

Be­ing a huge en­vi­ron­ment-preser­va­tion en­thu­si­ast, KMBL has en­gaged in a series of ini­tia­tives over a pe­riod of years in­clud­ing tree plan­ta­tion drives, ini­tia­tives in wildlife park, aware­ness-rais­ing pro­grams and the spon­sor­ship of chil­dren camp­site at Trail 5 in Is­lam­abad. Around the same time last year, KMBL also part­nered with Pun­jab For­est De­part­ment to plant and main­tain 6,000 plants at Changa Manga, near La­hore.
