Sunday 7th June 2015: After organizing 16 Cleanliness Campaigns, The Shah Satnam Ji Green ‘S’ Welfare Force Wing, Volunteers, Illford, London, conducted another Cleanliness Campaign to free the areas from the clutches of Garbage and filth.
50 volunteers took part in this Event and cleaning carried out in 20 Long Streets, clocking total time of just 2 hours. Around 100 large bags of garbage (500 kg approx) was collected in the process. Local residents were amazed by the speed and passion for this humanitarian activity carried out by the Volunteers, who in turn credit their true Master Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan for infusing the spirit of Humanity and oneness in HIS followers. Inspired by the pious teachings of Revered Guru Ji, Local residents too came ahead to fill Pledge forms to maintain cleanliness in their area henceforth. Seeing the Volunteers’ drive and passion for the Campaign, Environment and Waste manager Mr Russell Ward was quite impressed and expressed his heartfelt gratitude. The Volunteers promised to return for the next camp soon.
It is worth mentioning that the Cleanliness Campaigns carried by these Volunteers under the aegis of Dera Sacha Sauda, are run very systematically with teams being formed to look after various areas, needing attention like dry waste, cleanliness of nullahs and segregation of waste. What makes these Campaigns unique is the fact that the Volunteers educate the locals about the importance of cleanliness and various ways to maintain the same and even convince them to take pledges to maintain cleanliness in future. This is done by filling out pledge forms, which reiterates the whole exercise. With more than 29 Cleanliness Campaigns extending all parts of India, right from Puri in Orissa,Ganga to the last one, held in Mumbai, Cleanliness Campaigns held by Dera Sacha Sauda have been a model to achieve the nation wide Campaign of ‘Swacch Bharat Abhiyan’.
