Climate change is real and we need to get our hands in to reverse it. In an incredible series of activities done for the greater good, the Dera Sacha Sauda (DSS) volunteers of Melbourne, Australia conducted a tree plantation drive on Sunday, 2nd of May, 2021. A total of 480 saplings were planted at Moonee Valley Council at Fairbairn Park in Ascot Vale suburb, about 6km to north-west of Melbourne.
These volunteers are registered members of “Shah Satnam Ji Green ‘S’ Welfare Force Wing”, a humanitarian task force founded by Saint Dr. Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan, world renowned as Dr. MSG. The Moonee valley council praised the participating members for their humanitarian efforts towards nature.
A Glimpse into the Past: 2015 Tree Plantation Drive Melbourne
They Always Keep Contributing
Though the DSS organization is based in Sirsa district of Haryana, India, the disciples and members of Shah Satnam Ji Green S Welfare Force Wing all over the world keep contributing to the welfare activities initiated by Dr. MSG every now and then. So, it was not the first time that the DSS volunteers of Melbourne came forward to plant trees. Previously, they have conducted tree plantation drives at Sunbury, Coburg, Rowsley and other areas.
Service to Nature is Service to God
To prevent the environment from degradation, an initiative named ‘Nature Campaign’ was started by the Revered spiritual master on 15th August 2009. Since that day, the devotees in India and abroad are planting trees regularly to save & adorn the beauty of the mother earth. It is noteworthy that DSS volunteers also take due care and nurture the saplings they plant as their own children, as per the guidance of Dr MSG. They leave no chance to plant saplings; and celebrate all their personal achievements and special days with welfare activities such as this.
With Selfless Humanitarian Spirit
It’s not surprising to see several world records in tree plantation drive due to the passionate efforts of these devotees. The above-mentioned drive was a general drive but the dedication is worth watching during campaigns organized on specific occasions like their Revered master’s birthday or Dera Sacha Sauda foundation day and related occasions. Any kind of weather condition is not able to stop them. In any condition, they reach the venue for this humanitarian task on the pre decided day. And, they always express gratitude towards their spiritual master Dr. MSG for filling such selfless humanitarian spirit in them. It is this dedication that has earned them numerous awards and records such as Guinness World Records. A small effort by every individual can result in a major change. By being a part of such kinds of campaigns, we can make our planet can a better place to live.
