In Just One Day, The World’s 30th Dirtiest River Gets Cleaned
Earth Day may be just one day, but what Kuya Daniel and the Bible Readers’ Society International did will be remembered forever.
Watch the report of UNTV 37 Hataw Balita as it tells all of the fruits of Kuya Daniel‘s Isang Araw Lang (Just One Day) Campaign.
Wala talagang magiging mahirap sa desidido. At ‘ito ang napatunayan ngayon ng ating Isang Araw Para sa Kalikasan Project.
(Nothing is ever hard for the decided. And this is what we’ve proven with our Just One Day for Nature Project.)
Approximately 2,000 volunteers helped in cleaning the 30th dirtiest river in the world–Sapang Alat (15 km)–in Bagong Silang, Caloocan City last April 21, 2009.
Kay Kuya Daniel, maraming maraming salamat po sa inyo at sa inyong grupo. Napakalaking tulong po ang naibigay ninyo sa Lungsod ng Caloocan. Yun pong hindi kaya naming gawin ay nagawa po ng grupo. Sapagkat dito po sa Environmental Sanitation kulang po kami talaga ng manpower. Pero dun po sa grupo na pinadala ninyo nakita po o naging aware po ang mga tao kung ano po yung dapat gawin nating pangangalaga sa ating kailugan. Maraming maraming salamat po sa inyo at sa Bread Society International.
(To Kuya Daniel, thank you very, very much to you and your group. You have given great help to the city of Caloocan. What we could not do, your group has done. For here in Environmental Sanitation, we lack manpower. But with the help of your group, the people have seen or have become aware of the care that we should give to our rivers. Thank you very, very much to you and to the Bread Society International.)
