© Afreepress (Lomé, the 1st June 2016)-Every 21st June, Togo celebrates the national day of tree. It is an opportunity given to all citizen to plant at least one tree in their house, farm or even along roads. This year, “Save a soul for Christ Ministry International’ joined the move by planting thousands of trees on about eighteen hectares in the Doglobo, a village located about hundred kilometers from Lome the capital city.
For a total amount of 20,000,000 CFA, this project’s aim is to fight against global warming. It started two months ago with a training to parents and church members on advantages of environment protection. Pastor Philippe Ametepe, the leader of the Church, explains that the Church of Christ should not behave as if the global warming concerns only those outside over there. It concerns everybody because when it doesn’t rain, everybody endures warm and things in farms will not produce as expected, he adds.

This center operates through the Compassion Sponsorship Program and expect to deliver children from poverty in Jesus’ name. Those children in the Program are fed, loved, taken care of and their health is taken in charge by the Center assisted by Compassion International.
