OYA:  A total of 567.4kg of rubbish was collected at Oya Beach on Wednesday during a beach clean-up organised by the Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) Sarawak Mukah Campus on Wednesday.

Some 60 diploma students led by lecturers Ahmad Faisal Min Mahdi and Imelia Laura Daniel took part in the community outreach programme which covered an area of about two kilometres.

The programme aimed to instill a culture of volunteerism among the university students, as well as to give back to the society at large.

As the saying “a small pebble can create a big ripple effect” goes, this is a great instance of leading by example in showcasing how university students and communities can do their part for the environment.
