We believe in equality, solidarity and working together for development. We are very much sensitized about our environment and ambitious to plant one million trees by the end of 2019. If we want to make peace in the world then we have to start with ourselves. Let’s be united to create a peaceful and prosperous society” said Mr. Amjad Gulzar.
