YOUTHS of Korovuli in Macuata gave up their daily routines to thoroughly clean up their village early this week.

Korovuli Youth Club president and Red Cross Fiji volunteer Josefa Ravula said they decided to organise the initiative as part of International Youth Day celebrations.

With the theme, Youths for Mental Health — Mental Health Matters, Mr Ravula said the initiative was also a time to remember those youths who have been victims of drug, substance,emotional and physical abuse.

"Apart from just cleaning our village, we decided to dedicate the community work to those who are victims of mental illnesses," he said.

Mr Ravula said the initiative was also a time to foster inclusiveness among the youths in the village.

"It's a good sight to see everyone working together and sharing laughter and jokes."
