250 little Spruces
As prefect Adriana Dontu stated, ?unfortunately, Romanians are not very used with this kind of volunteership actions, so necessary and proving the strength and the responsibility of the society. We are trying to give an example. I?m happy to see how many of my colleagues agreed to participate?. The foresters explained the Prefect?s Institution clerks the planting rules and helped them during the entire operation. For three hours, the volunteers planted about 250 little spruces.
What a Volunteer meansĂ
The prefect also showed how important the involvement of state?s institutions is in environment protection projects. ?Being volunteer means that you care about what happens around you, that you want to get involved, that you are responsible. This only is the first step. We want to help thenceforth children and elders in distress. I hope other institutions follow our example?, prefect Dontu stated.
