Hai Moldova!This past Saturday, teenagers from various schools in the city of Ceadir Lunga came together and helped clean one of the areas that has a lot of thrash. Students between 9 to 12 class took thrash bags, gloves, and walked around the field to pick up plastic bottles, broken glass, paper, and all kinds of rubbish.
Littering is a big problem in many communities in Moldova. Adults and children often throw thrash in the streets, parks and nature. It is sad because Moldova is a beautiful country full of trees, fields and beautiful farms. We should teach our children not to litter. If they eat candy, we should teach them to throw them in the garbage can and never litter. It causes problems for nature if we treat our land like a trash can.
Thanks to the nationwide effort in Moldova, the “Hai Moldova” campaign raised awareness for cleaning up public places all over Moldova. Thousands of people volunteered and cleaned up the streets of their villages, towns, and cities. It is great and encouraging to see Moldovans being active in taking care of their communities.
In Ceadir Lunga, the cleaning effort was led by the local Non-Government Organization “Pharos”. Through their organization the cleanup in Ceadir Lunga was a success. We went to the big field near the 6th school and picked up all the trash we could find. Now the area is a lot cleaner!
Hopefully, we can keep our streets, parks and public places clean from trash. Let’s work together. Hai Moldova!
