One of the organisers, Kusile Kewana, said the aim was to inspire altruisim through volunteer activities. “Clean-up must be a continuous thing. We cannot stop, because people are continuously littering. Our goal is to create a safe working environment and to raise awareness about environmental issues like climate change, and to change people’s mindsets about how they view their surroundings.”
