NHF & NPF Partner to Restore Trees at Hope Royal Botanical Gardens

In line with the National Health Fund’s (NHF) ongoing tree planting initiative, the Agency collaborated with the Nature Preservation Foundation (NPF), management of the Hope Royal Botanical Gardens, to plant trees on location.

The NHF, who sponsored the 5K Run/Walk, planted sixty-five Pride of Barbados and Mahogany trees after the Race for Hope Run/Walk 5K held on Sunday, January 15, 2024. Another two-hundred fruit and ornamental trees have been distributed.

The partnership supports the replenishing of the Garden in view of the tree loss caused by hurricanes and other environmental stressors, as well as the Foundation’s principal objective of hosting “a wide collection of plant species” towards Goal #4 of Jamaica’s Vision 2030.

The NHF’s tree-planting project commenced in June of 2023 as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility activities to celebrate its 20th anniversary, with the goal of planting 20,000 trees.
