Gratitude prayer for Adama Diémé

21 Gennaio 2023

We thank God for all the people who are giving their lives to heal our mother Earth. A man in Southern Senegal, Adama Diémé, started an ambitious project of planting five million trees over the next five years. The idea came when he returned to the Casamance region after a few years working in Europe. He was shocked that in villages that were populated with hundreds of gigantic trees in his youth, few of them remained.
