'My Drain Day', an environmental event on drain care to prevent the pollution of rivers initiated by RA SS20 Central and supported by GAB Foundation, MBPJ and GEC (Global Environment Centre).
A very productive and interesting morning for everyone who attended the event. Activities included:
1. An informative talk on the care and purpose of drains by GEC.
2. Formation of SEDAR team (Search & Destroy Aedes Rangers) with the help of Jabatan Kesihatan, MBPJ.
Councillor Jamaliah Jamaluddin was present to join the SEDAR Team on a walkabout in the neighbourhood to search & destroy Aedes mosquitoes.
3. Cleaining of drains and the field in SS20 Central Zone. A bit of glamour was added to this mundane chore when Ms Janice Chai, Miss Malaysia All Nations joined the residents and the students from SMK Damansara Utama together with the MBPJ workers to clean the drain and the field.

It was a tremendously successful event with a turnout of about 130 people. We were extremely happy to have the students , PIBG and teachers from SMKDU participating in the event.
We thank all who were involved and participated in the event. It provided a good opportunity to foster neighbourliness among the people as well as to play an active part in environment preservation and maintaining cleanliness.
We hope that this can be an annual event where the residents, the school, MBPJ and other agencies can work together towards a clean, green and harmonious environment for all.
