MANNAM Volunteering at Mt. Bukhan

On Sunday March 10th, volunteers carried soil for the restoration of the destroyed forest at Mt. Bukhan.

We had a “Mannam Volunteer Day” at Mt. Bukhan, and it was a great opportunity to do some nice work for the earth and nature.

Mannam Korean class teachers and students joined this volunteer event.  Our steps were very joyful and happy, and even the weather turned out to be perfect.

The campaign to save the mountain began the minute we arrived at Mt. Bukhan.  The purpose of the event was to relay the message, “Do not litter your cigarette butts on the mountain.”

The students studying with Mannam Korean class shouted “산불을 조심합시다 (Let us prevent Forest Fires)” to people passing by.

We thought this would be an easy task of carrying the bags of soil, however, we were mistaken.

It was really hard to carry the bags of soil in each hand.

We put the soil in the plastic bags so we could carry it around the destroyed forest, and cover the roots that were exposed.

When we were exhausted, we took a short break and chat for a while under the trees.

We are given so many things from the nature without any cost or being asked to pay
So we need to love the nature and protect them.
