TIRUNELVELI: In an attempt to create awareness among the public of global warming and appeal to every citizen to plant as many trees to save the planet earth, the All India Overseas Bank Employees Union, Isha Foundation and Rotary Club of Tirunelveli Rural planted 100 saplings on the Tirunelveli Medical College premises on Sunday.

After the Isha Foundation decided to plant 20,000 tree saplings in association with the AIOBEU in various parts of Tirunelveli district during this year, the noble exercise was commenced some time ago.

As part of this ongoing programme, Senior Regional Manager of Indian Overseas Bank, Tirunelveli Region A. Rashid Khan planted a sapling on the TVMCH premises to mark the planting of 100 saplings on the campus of the hospital, which is catering to the needs of the poor patients from Tirunelveli, Kanyakumari and Tuticorin districts.

Tree guards erected around saplings

Immediately, ‘tree guards’ were also erected around the saplings to save the young plants from being destroyed by the frequently invading cattle.

A good number of doctors from TVMCH and house surgeons participated.
