  1. Congratulations Rumina on receiving the president and CEO, not an easy task, but like you, many will be inspired to do whatever is hurting our environment, how nature plays a big role on many aspects which GOD has blessed us with and we all need to take this seriously and hope people will stop destroying nature and so many of us take things for granted.
