THE Airport District of Seventh-day Adventists in Kumasi in the Ashanti Central Conference, has embarked on cleanup exercise to join the Ghanaian society in ensuring good sanitation practices.
The Women’s Ministries Leader for the district, Stella Gyimah, led participants of the exercise to begin the cleanup from the Buokrom Palace.
She emphasised that the church existed not in a vacuum and church members could not afford to always remain church houses and leave their surroundings in filth.
She said living in filth was ungodly and that Christianity, a religion that teaches cleanliness would frown on church members who would not keep their homes and surroundings clean.
Madam Gyimah said popular author in Adventist circles, Ellen G. White in her pieces of advice, cautions, education, and encouragement as enshrined in her writings, enjoined Seventh-day Adventists to remain as clean as possible.
Boukromhene, Nana Owusu Bempah, who was excited about the cleanup beginning from his palace expressed appreciation to the church for the efforts.
He reiterated the need for Ghanaians to take pragmatic approach to ensure good sanitation practices in their places of abode.
He used the occasion to advise the youth to join the wake-up call to campaign against those who flout environmental laws and be living examples of good environmental practices.
He finally, challenged government to continue the national sanitation programme by the past administration.
