The Ministry of Health and Environment in Torit State has distributed seedlings to the institutions within Torit municipality as a way of maintaining the environment.
The chairman for the committee formed to organize the World Environment Day celebration in the state, Zachariah Orva, says planting of trees will improve the environment.

Orva says the tree seedlings are given to five schools which were invited to participate during celebration of World Environment Day.
The event was lately cancel due to financial constrain, he adds.
The Acting Director encourages schools that received the seedlings to care and protect them for better outcome.
