To celebrate DHL’s 50th anniversary, DHL planted fifty olive trees on the grounds of Id-Dar tal-Providenza in Siggiewi. The initiative which was organized in conjunction with Flimkien għal Ambjent Aħjar (FAA) is in fulfilment of the logistic company’s international commitment to plant trees.
The event saw the participation of DHL Malta staff and volunteers from Flimkien għal Ambjent Aħjar and Id-Dar tal-Providenza pitching in together to plant the trees. All the olive trees planted are from local stock and were acquired from nature reserves run by local NGOs, Gaia Foundation and Birdlife Malta.
DHL Malta’s initiative also has a social dimension as olives produced by the trees being planted will be picked by residents at the St Isidor Agricultural Centre at Id-Dar tal-Providenza during the annual olive harvest. The olives are then sent for pressing and prepared for bottling to be sold by the Centre in Siġġiewi and at the Home’s office in St Paul Street, Valletta.
