A tree can absorb as much as 48 pounds of carbon dioxide per year and can sequester 1 ton of carbon dioxide by the time it reaches 40 years old. One large tree can lift up to 100 gallons of water out of the ground and discharge it into the air in a day. One large tree can provide a day's supply of oxygen for up to four people.

Increasing physical inactivity is becoming a serious health concern, according to WHO. The organisation states that physical inactivity is currently the fourth leading cause of death globally and is a contributing factor in the development of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as diabetes, cancer and heart diseases. Besides that, the reducing in amount of trees will increase the temperature of Earth. Apart from that, there are a lot of unlucky people who we suppose to lend out our hands! The person who helping other is luckier than the person who is accepting help. We believe in giving out what we can towards our families as well as of the community and society at large. We understand the importance of responsible environment and health to our growth.
MICA helps in overcome the problems by organizing events related that support in “GO GREEN” and “HEALTHY LIFE STYLE” concept while in the same time can help in welfare services and strengthen relationships between countries.
