Reforestation along the Sosúa river

Tuesday, June 20th a group of concerned residents of Sosúa and surrounding villages inspected the banks of the Sosúa river near Bella Vista. They intend to reforest the area with a tree planting day on Sunday, June 25th. Because of illegal logging almost all the trees have disappeared. During the rainy season often heavy downpours wash away the topsoil. The forest with its dense vegetation ensured that rainwater was absorbed better and therefore floods were avoided. Now these trees have disappeared and nothing holds the water during heavy rains anymore and the houses along the river suffer from the flooding.

On Sunday, volunteers and residents of Sosúa, start planting trees along the river.
