In support of the efforts to keep Voco Point seaside free from waste, the Local Congregation of Lae City, in the Ecclesiastical District of Australia West, conducted a cleanup activity in the area on November 20, 2022.
Considered to be the country’s busiest coastal trading point, Voco Point is a suburb of Lae City, in the province of Morobe, Papua New Guinea.
“It’s one of the spots where the province of Morobe is known for. Its beauty and scenic views are awe inspiring,” Brother Edmark Velasco, resident ministerial worker, remarked. “So, we want to keep it clean and attractive.”
Grouped into threes, the brethren combed the beachfront, picking up trash along the way. They also made sure to properly segregate what can be recycled and those that needed to be disposed of.
Through the eco-friendly activity carried out by the brethren, Brother Edmark hoped to “inspire the people of Lae City in taking care of the environment and show them the proper way of disposing of their trash in a responsible manner.” — With reports from INC News Section
