On September 24, a beach cleaning program was carried out at the Kampung Nelayan Beach, Teluk Kumbar. The program was conducted in collaboration between Ivorycares and MBI Charity 100 group which was also attended by Mr Boey Chee Kun, the chief operating of shopping complex management.
Cason Khor from Sales and Marketing Department said that Ivorians should contribute by taking part in charity work.
“This charity work can educate our citizens about environmental conservation too,” he said.
The team gathered at 8:30 in the morning before they were divided into several groups to start collecting garbage along the beach. Plastic garbage bags and gloves were distributed to ensure safety of participants. After the event, the garbage were collected and handled by the staff of Penang Island City Council (MBPP). There was also a group photo session before the event ended.
