AS part of efforts to fight dengue fever, the villagers of Wailevu in Labasa took time out from their busy schedules on Tuesday to take part in a clean-up campaign.

The activity, supported by the Wailevu Methodist Church circuit, resulted in the participation of young and old. Reverend Ulaiasi Raturaga said the initiative was worthwhile.

"This initiative is supported by the circuit as we aim to keep our environment clean," he said.

"We have taken the initiative to clean up the village because we believe cleanliness is next to godliness. This is also an opportunity for us to work with the Ministry of Health in the fight against the mosquito-borne disease."

Labasa special administrator Vijay Chand applauded the villagers' initiative, saying the activity was appreciated. "It's really good to learn that the villagers are making an effort to clean their own village."
