Members of the Young Single Adults (YSA) for the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints were out in numbers on Saturday picking up rubbish around the Suva City area.
The young adults are between the ages of 18 to 35 and are part of a five-day convention organised by the church to bring together young adults from across the country.
LDS elders quorum president Sonny Maiwiriwiri said the clean-up around Suva was to teach the youth the act of service.
“There are about 400 young adults from Labasa, Kadavu, one from Rotuma and all over Vanua Levu and Viti Levu here in Suva to attend this convention,” he said.
“Not only young single adults are here, we also have single mothers and fathers.”
He said the clean-up campaign around Suva was one of the first activities by the church.
“We wanted to do community service for free and at the same time teach the youths how to do service and serve their neighbours.
“There are three groups picking up rubbish at the Suva Foreshore. Suva Point and the third group are at the temple.”
