Han Chiang University College of Communication (HCUC) staff and students participated in a gotong-royong within the HCUC compound last Friday, in an effort to eradicate all potential Aedes mosquito breeding grounds.
Coordinator Eric Shaun Seaton said the activity received an overwhelming support from all staff and students.
“Although the main objective of the gotong-royong is to curb the breeding of Aedes mosquitoes, it has also showed a spirit of unity among HCUC staff and students.
“This activity will be carried out continuously. In fact, the Ministry of Higher Education has also advised all educational institutions to conduct gotong-royong activities twice a year,” he said.
The clean-up activity lasted two hours, which involved clearing clogged drains and rain gutters as well as collecting rubbish and disposing them properly.
Also present at the gotong-royong was HCUC Vice Chancellor Dr Beh Kok Hooi.
