  • On this World Water Day, we reaffirm our commitment to protecting and preserving water. Let us remember that every drop counts, and work together to protect it. 🌍💧

  • Reduce your carbon footprint and help save the planet! Small changes can make a big difference. 🌍♻️

1. Reduce energy consumption: We can reduce our energy consumption by turning off lights and appliances when they are not in use. Using energy-efficient appliances and replacing traditional light bulbs with LEDs can also help to reduce energy consumption.
2. Use public transport, walk or bike: Instead of using personal vehicles, we can choose to walk, bike, or take public transport, which can significantly reduce our carbon footprint.
3. Eat a plant-based diet: Eating a plant-based diet or reducing meat consumption can help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, as the production of meat is a significant contributor to carbon emissions.
4. Reduce, reuse, recycle: We can reduce our carbon footprint by reducing the amount of waste we produce, reusing items, and recycling as much as possible.
5. Support renewable energy: Supporting renewable energy initiatives like solar, wind, and hydro can help to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and significantly reduce our carbon footprint.
6. Plant trees and support reforestation: Trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, so planting trees and supporting reforestation initiatives can help to reduce our carbon footprint.
7. Educate and advocate: Educating ourselves and others about the impact of climate change and advocating for policies and initiatives that reduce carbon emissions can help to create a more sustainable future.

  • Remembering Rachel Corrie 🕊️ 
On March 16, 2003, 23-year-old American peace activist Rachel Corrie was killed in Gaza by an Israeli bulldozer while preventing the demolition of a Palestinian family's home. However, her struggle for justice continues to remain alive.

She was known for her passion for peace and defending Palestinian rights by frequently broadcasting photo essays exposing Israeli rights violations in the occupied territories.
