A group of volunteers cleaned up the streets of East Ham in order to “do something good for humanity”.
Dera Sacha Sauda, a “social-spiritual” organisation that carries out humanitarian work, cleaned up 12 streets from Kensington Avenue to East Avenue and Berkley Avenue.
The team of 60 volunteers received council permission for their work, for which they brought our own brooms, gloves and bin bags.
The group’s campaign has been supported by Stephen Timms MP, who it says will attend its October 27 clean up event.
Ankur Jain, a leader of the campaign, said: “It was rewally good. The people came to volunteer from Luton, Cardiff and Birmingham.”
“I feel it is our earth. I consider myself a guets on this earth, so should not make a mess where you are a guest. We should keep the earth clean, and if we do there will be no diseases.”
The group has many branches in India and has run tree-planting campaigns in the UK.
