It was participated by nearly 100 employees of NIA Region 7 since a skeletal work force was retained in the office to cater our basic services. The 34th International Coastal Clean-up was held at San Pedro Beach, Dauis, Bohol, started at 8 o’clock until 11 o’clock in the morning.

Together, they amassed a total amount of 300 kilos of garbage and other waste materials when being put to the 18 sacks for disposal. It was fun, perspiring yet motivating because knowing that it will be beneficial to the people, who will be visiting or staying in the area, there is a certain drive in us to do more and this puts a smile on our face that doing good is our gaiety
