Kenyan children, archbishop, and Loretto convent school plants trees in Pope Francis forest
The tree planting exercise was organised to coincide with Environment Day that was commemorated last week.
‘In the book of Genesis, God created human beings and told them to be caretakers of creation. Pope Francis always reminds us to care for the environment,” Archbishop Kivuva told the children and their teachers.
Samaritan’s Purse, a humanitarian aid organisation, donated the trees.
