In 1989, an average Australian yachtsman, Ian Kiernan had a simple idea to make a difference in his own backyard - Sydney Harbour. This simple idea has now become the nation's largest community-based environmental event, called Clean-up Australia Day.

It is generally held on the first Sunday of March each year. On this day people, especially families with their children and communities come out in force and do their best to clean the streets, creeks, parks and beaches. This year Clean up Australia day commenced on 3rd March 2013. Like every year for the past decade our Jamaat in Adelaide participated in this program with great zest and zeal. The event started at 10:00am with silent prayer. Our Jamaat in South Australia was honoured with the company of the founder of Clean-Up Australia Day, Ian Kiernan. {Video Clip of Ian Kiernan thanking the community}

Total 000 members of Jamaat including Majlis Ansarullah, Khuddamul Ahmadiyya and Itifal-ul-Ahmadiyya took care of a four-kilometre area on Tepley’s Hill road near the Adelaide airport. We asked some khuddams why and how long they had been participating in this event. {Video Clip of Khuddams and Itefals}

Whereas, 38 lajna Amaillah cleaned Byards road and the surrounding area in the Happy Valley area. This humble achievement caught the attraction of media who covered the story in their local newspaper and segments on television with the headlines stating, ‘Muslims lead the way in Clean Up” as around Australia our local jamaats were on top in the category of most volunteers and fundraising. Our Jamaat members in Adelaide donated $612 towards the event.

At the end all participants were served with refreshments and President Sahib thanked everyone for making this event successful.
