WeLoveU Foundation carries out the Clean WORLD Movement in Pretoria with Mother’s Love

The ‘Worldwide One-Two Blood Drive’, which practices the value of sharing life, is also active.

On the morning of the 23rd of July 2023, approximately 100 WeLoveU members and their families in Pretoria participated in the Clean WORLD Movement to clean up the 2km section of De Villiers Avenue, Danville.

A total of about 200 garbage bags of litter were collected over 1 hour and 30 minutes. The City of Tshwane welcomed the news of the WeLoveU’s voluntary environmental clean-up activities and provided garbage bags.

Since this place is densely populated with houses, there is a lot of illegally dumped garbage everywhere. Volunteers of various ages, including young and old office workers, who took advantage of the holiday to clean up, looked carefully around the streets and picked up everyday garbage such as disposable plastic cups and straws, plastic bags, scraps of paper, and waste masks using re-usable bags to create a green environment.

Katlego Makgaleng, a PR Councillor in Danville and a member of the Tshwane City Council who visited the site, expressed his deep gratitude by saying: “Thank you very much, our environment needs to be clean and habitable.” He further said that “the love of Zahng Gil-Jah has touched the people of Danville”.

The Founder of Tiny Towns Danville Ms. Odette Guli-van Zyl who joined the clean-up said “I am absolutely stunned at the outcome of the people who are diligently helping out. Thank you to the WeLoveU Foundation and to the Chairlady.”

One of the WeLoveU Foundation officials who was picking up trash diligently said with a bright smile :“It feels great to do good deeds and what the Chairwoman Zahng Gil-Jah is doing is very good and moving.”

This year is the 15th year that WeLoveU, which creates a sustainable global environment, has conducted the Clean WORLD Movement in South Africa. It has continuously carried out environmental clean-up activities in the city centre and parks in areas with a large floating population such as Cape Town, Johannesburg, Pretoria, and Port Elizabeth.
