ON : September 13, 2018

On September 13, 2018, the Bosconians of Bosco Sevana joined all the parishes and religious groups in taking care of Mother Nature by making sure that the beaches along the coast of Negombo are kept clean.  The “Beachfront Cleaning Activity” was organized by Caritas Sri Lanka in coordination with all the priests and religious of Negombo.  An orientation on the care of Nature especially the beach was given by the organizers before the boys were asked by groups to take care of collecting all the non-biodegradable wastes that were left on the beach.  After almost a day of work, the boys were tired but surely happy that they were able to contribute in making Nature clean and beautiful in their own little ways.
