THE afternoon heat did little to deter the determination of over 20 volunteers who spent their Saturday afternoon painting and sprucing up the sixth floor of the People’s Housing Projects (PPR) block in Section 8, Kota Damansara.
Smeared with white paint on their faces and hair, volunteers from various shelter homes engaged in a gotong-royong organised by non-governmental organisations Friends of Kota Damansara (FOKD) and Agape Vision, along with residents of the sixth floor of Block B, PPR Kota Damansara in Petaling Jaya.
FOKD chairman Jeffrey Phang said that among their objectives was to turn the floor into a model floor for safety and cleanliness.
Phang hoped that they could change the littering habit through this exercise.
He added that beyond the gotong-royong, their aim was to inculcate a spirit of camaraderie among residents on the sixth floor.
During the gotong-royong, volunteers were seen painting, dusting and picking up litter.
