As part of efforts to restore the country’s forest cover, Green Republic, in collaboration with Youth Icon Ghana, has launched a campaign to plant 20 million trees in the country over a 10-year period.

In line with this, about 10,000 trees are expected to be planted in Tamale, the Northern regional capital.

The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that a total of 7 million people die daily from respiratory related diseases as a result of air pollution.
