Amanzinyama and Brake Village river clean-up

2017-04-06 06:03

THE community-based Humanitarians4Humanity (H4H) focuses on environmental clean up and rehabilitation.
The organisation’s motto is “Let’s clean up Tongaat, one street at a time”.

Currently they have embarked on a project focusing on parks and rivers which sees the team recruiting volunteers from the vicinity of the park or river in question for their clean up campaigns. 
So far the team is grateful that horticulturist­ Ramu Govender of Parks and Gardens and residents have come out in support of their campaigns­ and the organisation conveys their heartfelt appreciation to them.
Projects done to date are the Sastri Circle pathway clean up and Mitchell Crescent river bank and park clean up.

The organisation asks that the community of Tongaat be cognisant of the fact that there are no dumping sites in Tongaat except for the DSW site in Trurolands.
All other dump sites around Tongaat are illegally created by residents and illegal dumping carries a stiff fine.
Some of these sites are being monitored. The community is urged to be vigilant and report illegal dumping as we only have one earth to leave to our children.
The next project, Project Amanzinyama and Brake Village river clean-up, takes place on Saturday, 1 April from 8am (registration).
The meeting point is the vacant land next to the Tongaat Town Hall.

Please note, due to the possible dangers during the course of the clean-up campaign, the organisation requires the assistance of volunteers 16 years and older. Indemnities will be signed at 8am and the clean-up begins at 9am.
