Wainunu Settlement conducted a clean-up campaign along the creek in their community.

Residents of Wainunu Settlement in Wainibuku, Nausori conducted a clean-up campaign along the creek in their community to help save the partially-damaged culvert crossing that connects them to the main road.

Wainunu Settlement Committee Chairman, Semisi Vakacegu says they are concerned with the continuous erosion of soil and there is a lot of waste in the creek.

Vakacegu says they had called on the residents for a clean-up along the creek, and also sought assistance from the Nausori Town Council and Police.

He adds Nausori Town Council provided gloves and garbage bag for their clean-up campaign, and they also collected the waste from the creek.
