Prayer of Gratitude for Hargila Army and Dr. Purnima’s Initiative

17 Marzo 2023

We thank God for the efforts that lay people are making to protect the environment and biodiversity. 10.000 rural women in India, known as the Hargila army, joined forces to save the endangered bird species. The women protect the world’s rarest storks by honoring the owners of nesting trees as guardians. To get women out of their homes, Dr. Purnima organized baby showers during the storks’ breeding season and happy hatching ceremonies.
