Bantwal, Mar 18 : "The clean person is not one that runs away from dirt but one who takes the time and effort to tidy-up a dirty environment."

The ICYM unit of St. Thomas the Apostle Church , Ammembal joined the staff and NSS students of Milagres College, Hampankatta, Mangalore, in an environmental clean-up activity with the objective of eliminating plastic, held on 12th March 2023.

The activity began under the guidance and support of Fr. Michael Dsilva Ammembal, Fr. Michael Santhumayor Milagres and Mr. Robert Dsouza - vice president Ammembal.

There were about 55 NSS students and were divided into 5 teams. Each team was assigned 5 different areas around the church. The ICYM members coordinated them by taking them to different areas and cleaning the area.

Altogether, they worked for a few hours. The areas were cleaned and they filled all the plastic waste in several garbage bags. The necessary arrangements were made for the disposal of this waste.

The people of the area were very encouraging and helpful. They were pleased to see the good work and provided them with drinking water, eatables and garbage bags.

Ultimately, it was a pleasure and satisfaction to see the area clean.
