Dimapur, Sep. 20 (EMN): ‘Let’s do it! India’ celebrated ‘World Cleanup Day’ (September 17) in Senapati district, Manipur, which was spearheaded by the 7 Sister’s Foundation, Tribal Knowledge Foundation, Rise Senapati Volunteering Group and Tsiibe Foundation.

An update informed that the event witnessed the participation of more than 5000 volunteers including those from the district administration, civil societies, youth organisations and educational institutions from different corners of Senapati district, volunteering to make a difference.

Let’s Do It! India co-ordinator of North-Eastern states, Saveio Khole, in his keynote address welcomed the volunteers  and highlighted the significance of Let’s do it! India. “No waste just goes away, it ends up in our neighbour’s place,” Khole quipped.

The chief guest of the event, Lorho S Pfoze, Member of Parliament, Outer Manipur (ST), lauded the “revolutionary initiative” and expressed joy at seeing young leaders joining the rest of the world in the mission to revive and make Mother Earth a better place to live in for everyone.

“As we join the rest of the world in this historic movement, let us be reminded that it was because of our forefathers that we have our today and it will be because of our action today that our next generation will have their tomorrow,” the MP said.

“Let us all join our hands together and collectively contribute our part to revitalise our declining environment and make our Mother Earth a little cleaner and a little greener bit by bit before it is too late,” Pfoze added.

DFO Senapati, D John Sha, the guest of honour reminded the participants that every day is a cleanup day.

“Keeping our surroundings clean and living a hygienic life should be a habit. It should not be a burden to dispose of waste but be a part of our daily life like the way we eat and sleep. Keeping our surroundings clean means we are living a healthy life,” the DFO said.

Sha also reminded that if waste is disposed improperly, it pollutes the aquatic and terrestrial ecosystem. “Let us all be responsible citizens and keep our surroundings clean for a better living,” he said.
