In commemoration of the Day of the New Jerusalem, around 50 members of the World Mission Society Church of God conducted a campaign to clean up the mangroves of Viejo, Panama yesterday. Along with volunteers from the National Environmental Authority, they collected all kinds of waste, from mattresses to tree trunks.

“We carried out this activity in order to contribute in some way to clean up the country, which is everyone’s responsibility,” said Rolando Allamby, spokesman of the Church of God. Rolando added, “Through the clean-up campaign, we removed a lot of waste entangled among mangroves. Such waste is possible to cause fish to be killed.”
