“We would like to call for volunteers to participate in the Clean-Up exercise. The clean-up exercise involves cleaning of very dirty streets and the canal that demarcates Bariga and Shomolu local government Areas.”
The project is sponsored in stages by PEER Group Initiative, LAWMA, Exxon Mobil, Institute of Social Workers of Nigeria, Shomolu Local Government Area, Health Matters Incorporated, Adesola Clinic and a host of other youth organizations.
Volunteers will be highly needed. Interested volunteers can send their details to email@example.com or reach Salu Adepeju on 08056045500.
This project is for a good cause. The clean up exercise will help reduce the flooding witnessed in Lagos recently and reduce malaria incidences in the Local Government Area to the bearest minimum.
