Baby Leads Clean-Up Campaign In Savusavu

A fifteen-month-old baby was the centre of attraction in Savusavu Town as he led a cleanup campaign that got more than 60 people involved.
Baby Wilde da Silva Barrington and his family from Gold Coast, Australia, are visiting Savusavu for three months and it’s their first time as well.
Grandmother, Lindy Jansen said it all started with her grandson picking up rubbish and putting them in the bins.
Her 16-year-old son, Coopa Jansen, then told the family to carry out a clean-up campaign just like they do back at home.
“Fiji is a beautiful place, we have been to Fiji before in other parts of the country but this is our first trip to Savusavu and we’re spending three months with the community,” Mrs Jansen said.

“My grandson was picking up rubbish and putting them in the bin which gave us the idea to give back to the community by having a clean-up campaign.
“I sought permission from the council, business houses and more than 60 people turned up and we collected 74 bags of rubbish,” she said.
