CAIRO – 25 November 2021: The Youth Love Egypt (YLE) Foundation has planted, 2,000 trees under the auspices of the Ministry of Irrigation and Giza Governorate and in cooperation with Thyssenkkrupp to adapt to climate changes.



The afforestation campaign was launched Thursday, in Dahshur area, near Giza Pyramids, aiming to plant 2,000 olive trees, berries and pomegranate trees on both sides of one of the canals that were lined within the national project for lining canals and drains.

The project comes within the framework of the Foundation's efforts to adapt to climate changes after the Climate Summit in Glasgow.



The research unit of the Youth Love Egypt Foundation carried out a research study on these trees and the impact of their roots on the lining project. This initiative comes within the ‘Nile Tree’ project, which was launched by the Foundation on World Environment Day under the slogan of restoration with the aim of planting half a million trees over two years to adapt to the weather changes.
