Male’ Maldives, 26th October 2023 – In its steadfast commitment to sustainable and eco-friendly practices, Sun Siyam Vilu Reef organized a tree planting initiative in F. Magoodhoo on October 25, 2023, where a total of 155 trees were planted. The primary focus of this endeavor was on areas designated for an airport construction project, with the main goal being to improve the ecological balance and instill environmental consciousness within the local community.
The project was led by Resort Manager Thoha Yoosuf and Mohammed Hameed (Printey), the Chairman of Vilu Reef’s Family Club, who were joined by 30 dedicated employees from Sun Siyam. Together, they embarked on a significant journey to the pristine island of Maghodhoo as part of the continuous celebration of Sun Siyam Vilu Reef’s Silver Jubilee.
Collaborating with the local council and communities, these teams worked together to plant a symbolic total of 155 trees, symbolizing their unwavering commitment to both the environment and the well-being of the communities supported by Sun Siyam Resorts. The success of the project was greatly aided by the F. Magoodhoo Council’s valuable collaboration, logistical coordination, and permissions.
