Selim Taşo, the Managing Director of Alliance Healthcare Turkey said: “We started our tree planting activities four years ago, on   May 14th National Pharmacists’ Day 2018. We organize these activities together with the Local Pharmacy Chambers to identify the deforested areas that need attention and plant our saplings in the areas deemed appropriate by the Ministry of Forestry. To date, we carried out the planting activities in 15 regions and by the end of this year, we will have approximately 30,000 trees planted throughout Turkey. Our goal is to cover the whole of the country with new regions added every year. We would like to make our contribution to create healthier futures and leave a better world for our children.”
