The Suhum Local Council of Churches, in collaboration with the office of the Akyempim Hene and the Suhum Municipal Assembly, has launched an environmental campaign exercise as a way of creating awareness on the need to take good care of the environment.
The campaign, dubbed “Operation Clean your Backyard” was held on Wednesday, March 16, 2022, with a float within the principal streets of Suhum.
In an interview, Pastor Anthony Eghan Kwesi Ekuban, the Suhum Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, who also doubles as Chairman of the Suhum Local Council of Churches, said that the campaign was in response to the government’s initiative for cleaning and greening the environment.
Pastor Ekuban made a clarion call to all Christians to get involved in the ‘operation clean your backyard’ exercise which will be held on Saturday, March 19, 2022.
“It is important that as Christians, we take good care of our environment as we possess the nations,” he said.
Among others, the operation clean your background will focus on the planting of trees and desilting of gutters within Suhum and its environs.
