Nation’s Jubilee 2015 Cleanup Campaign

Sep 27, 2016 | Activities, Environmental Protection

On  Aug 9, 2015, Singapore celebrated its most anticipated 50th National Day. For Singapore’s Golden Jubilee, government officials and event planners spent a tremendous amount of effort in making this a very special day for Singapore. The National Day Parade has “Majulah Singapura” as its theme, which means “Onward Singapore” in Malay. The phrase “Majulah Singapura” is also the name of the National Anthem. The main celebration was held at The Padang, which can hold a capacity of approximately 25,000 people. About 200,000 other spectators gathered around the proximity of the main stage and seven other celebratory sites around the area of Marina Bay.

The members of the World Mission Society Church of God Singapore (SGWMSCOG),  wanted to contribute to this celebration by volunteering to clean up the event sites. Partnering with the Public Hygiene Council, a total of 162 SGWMSCOG volunteers, gathered at Marina Bay Sands to kick start the campaign. Equipped with trash bags, gloves and thongs, they were divided into several groups and were dispersed to all the celebratory sites. Groups of nine members were stationed at a few checkpoints to help clear up the trash that were left behind by the audience.

“Although I am not a Singaporean, I wanted to be a part of Singapore’s Jubilee. To be able to celebrate Singapore’s National Day with my Singaporean friends, and to participate in this clean up is very meaningful to me. I even got the chance to see fireworks today!” exclaimed Cyrus Ting, Malaysian, 24,  participating in the National Day Parade for the first time.

Upon seeing the volunteers clad in white with the logo “#KeepSGclean”, members of the public were encouraged and reciprocated by approaching the volunteers to dispose their rubbish in the trash bags. The act of kindness created a meaningful National Day celebration for everyone.

    Clean up campaigns like this have been done by the WMSCOG worldwide for years in over 2500 regions in 175 countries.

    By participating in such campaigns by the church, we become more conscious and grateful of the ladies and gentlemen who clean up after our streets every day and after such massive national events to enable us the “clean and green” reputation of Singapore today. It was a humbling experience that everyone should have and also helped to set an example that many do not consider about during national festivals/events.

    Thanks to God for first coming as the light to purify the world!

    Through this cleanup, I felt a sense of patriotism. I was glad that I was not only able to be a good citizen by taking care of the environment, I was able to display God’s glory as a Christian! I truly give thanks to God for allowing me to have this chance to do good deed.

    I do hope the World Mission Society, Church of God will organise more of such events in the future. I will definitely be part of it.

    What a great way to celebrate our Nation’s golden Jubilee year!

    Too bad I missed this National Day clean up, I hope there will be another chance to clean up on National Day. It is quite normal to see tonnes of rubbish left over after the event ended, it is great idea that Singapore GOV allowed our church to participate in this clean up. A way for WMSCOG to return to our beautiful country! Through our participation we are able to spread Christ teaching to shine our good deeds so people may praise our Father in Heaven 👍 ånimö! 💞
