University students from World Mission Society Church of God Singapore (SGWMSCOG) collaborated with ASEZ, an international volunteer group consisting of university and college students around the world, and took the initiative in cleaning the campus of National University of Singapore (NUS) on Jan 13, 2017.
At 9 in the morning, the volunteers gathered at the designated cleaning areas which included UTown, Faculty of Engineering, Faculty of Science, School of Medicine, Yusof Ishak House, Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences, as well as the open field, and started picking up trash in groups.
“Thanks to the constant effort of the cleaners, NUS is usually very clean. However, there are still some spots which tend to be overlooked. It’s good that we have this opportunity to clean those areas too,” said 20-year-old Lydia Teh, an NUS student who participated in the event, “I love NUS, it’s beautiful and homely. We want to keep it clean always.”
The purpose of this campaign is not only cleaning the school but to help the students realise their responsibility to take good care of the campus as a student as well. “Saving the earth is not something that only organisations like the UN can do, but a responsibility granted to each and every individual who are living on this earth,” said Samuel E, 21, a student of NUS and an organizer of the event.
What is ASEZ?
ASEZ, which is the acronym for “Saving the Earth from A to Z”, is an organisation which hopes to bring love and help to wherever is needed, abiding by the motto, ‘Mother Is Love’. In this world where problems such as natural disasters, wars and crises are rampant, ASEZ believes that all problems can be solved when each of us takes care of the earth with the love of mother—which is the greatest love of all and the solution to all problems.
Wishing that the world would be changed through the efforts of the youth, the SGWMSCOG will continue to work in collaboration with ASEZ in carrying out voluntary works in the future and share the love of God the Mother with everyone living in this global village.
