Drogba kicks off ‘million trees’ project

Football legend Didier Drogba helped launch a drive Friday to plant a million trees to halt deforestation in Ivory Coast.

The “One Day, One Million Trees” campaign “is a first step, the start of the recovery,” Forestry and Water Resources Minister Alain Richard Donwahi said in Abidjan.

“Our goal is to recover at least 30 percent (of lost forest cover) by 2030,” he said.

Drogba said the “numbers are alarming.”

“I am proud to contribute to Ivory Coast’s reforestation through helping awareness.”
