Do you think is normal to feel warmer every year? See neighbors flooded by strong tropical storms? In Merida, my friends, neighbors, and relatives more often experience these problems and deforestation is one of the main causes. Trees regulate temperature, provide shade, cool the air, and filter water into the ground. Trees are urgently needed to remedy this problem! I ask your help to, with Kanan Kab, produce and plant 4,000 native trees, benefiting neighbors and families of Merida city.
Every day, I see more buildings and fewer trees. Urban growth has increased deforestation in Merida. My neighbors complain about high temperatures and many of my acquaintances have faced flood neighborhoods by strong tropical storms. Also, l found less animals and birds because deforestation has deprived them of shelter and food.
Since 2011, together with Kanan Kab, I had produced and planted trees to Merida City. All my life, I grew up with trees. I know how important they are to improve air quality, reduce heat, filter water into the ground, and provide food and shelter. Until now we have planted 130, 000 trees to improve life quality of Merida neighbors but, to continue my labor I need you. Would you help me to be part of the solution?
From the nursery, together with the Kanan Kab team, we work towards the dream of a greener and more harmonious Merida. Therefore, this project is the seed of our ambitious goal of planting and donating 20,000 trees per year, ensuring that in a long term we can have more and better green areas that provide us more pleasant temperatures and protect us in the rainy season.
