The Yennyawoso District of The Church of Pentecost in the New Tafo Area has capped off this year’s Environmental Care Campaign Week with a massive clean-up exercise at Sofo Abodwese, a suburb of Kumasi, to give the place a face-lift.
The exercise, which took place on Saturday, March 19, 2022, was part of activities earmarked for the National Environmental Care Campaign Week observed by the Church.
Environmental Care Campaign which is part of the Vision 2023 of the Church enjoins members of the church to have a sense of responsibility to keep the environment safe as they tend to transform every sphere of society with the principles and values of the Kingdom of God.
The week featured sensitization and education on environmental and sanitation issues from Wednesday, 16 to Friday, March 18, 2022, at the Redemption Assembly auditorium.
The various speakers bemoaned how human activities and their negative effects have marred the environment and humanity. They underscored the need for Ghanaians to be responsible citizens by protecting and keeping the environment clean to stay safe and healthy.
To maintain a clean environment and good sanitation, members were admonished not to make cleanliness a “one day act” but a habit.
Led by the District Minister, Pastor Charles Oduro, the exercise was highly patronized by the church members.
The exercise, which started early in the morning, focused on clearing all solid waste in the street, drains as well as desilting choked gutters.
