Our environment is everything around us, the water we drink, the air we breathe, the places where we cook our food, our workplace and our home. Once your environment is safe and healthy, you are more likely to stay healthy. However, when your environment exposes you to unsafe conditions, then health becomes something to worry about.
This reason prompted the Domestic Affair Department (DAD), to organize a cleanup campaign to collect wrappers and other waste stuff from our noble university. Luckily for all of us, the cleanup exercise came into reality and was a success.
We began collecting improperly disposed off rubbish from the Reading Academy, continued through the Administration; there that we realized that, the journey of clean-up had truly begun within the brightness of the sunny day.
We marched up to the university streets and dormitories, through the shops and along the lecture halls shouting, “Wo ai NUIST”, while we cleaned up. Along the way, students from various departments also joined the good deed cleanup exercise.
Of course, we could not remove the fun of snapping pictures to arouse our interest from this exercise because alongside were the VIP publicity photographers. Other students talked about different issues of life and the importance of this clean up.More volunteering students came to assist us as we marched to the middle campus where the campaign came to an end.
At the middle campus too, we did what we do best, wrapping up all plastics and other waste materials. Information came across that, maybe in future the cleanup exercise would be extended to all areas of the campus.
The DAD CLEANUP CAMPAIGN was a success and we say BRAVO to all executives of DAD and its members, not forgetting the assistance from other departmental students that made this event successful.
