More than 50 soldiers from the Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) joined hands to clean our shores along Nasese seawall in Suva yesterday.

Group leader responsible for the clean-up and RFMF staff officer operations, Captain Neumi Vakadewabuka said it was a proud moment for RFMF to witness the soldiers taking pride in climate change commitment and showed their support to clean the foreshores.

“The RFMF believes that Climate Change is something very serious that everyone should take responsibility of.

“We are here today to clean up the Suva foreshore removing as many plastics and rubbish we can.

“We believe that cleaning this rubbish helps to contribute to a better ocean.

Less poluttion in the coastal ecosystem will also contribute to climate change effects.

“It’s an effort that we believe is RFMF’s contribution to the national effort to COP23 as Fiji is leading the presidency of the conference in November.

“Climate change is very important for all of us nationally and globally. It is an issue that is mostly faced by our villagers with rising sea levels. It affects the marine lives as well and doing the clean up can help our Fijian brothers and sisters,” Captain Vakadewabuka said.
