Cleanliness in the community is just as important as cleanliness for individuals and families. Any community effort to improve sanitation helps people to improve and overcome the challenges they face in their daily lives.
Saaf Mahol is a novel initiative started by Mother Helpage to keep the environment clean as it plays an imperative role in our day to day lives. As a part of society it is our moral responsibility to keep the environment clean and make sure it is kept preserved for future generations.
As industrial and technological advances are increasing so is the pollution being thrown into the atmosphere. Even we as humans ignore such issues and most of the time, throw our garbage on the roads, instead of using the facilities in place. With time, this garbage gets accumulated and as a result becomes a source for many air and water borne diseases leading to severe health consequences.
In order to overcome this issue Mother Helpage started the “Saaf Mahol” project to make people aware about the benefits of keeping the environment clean and how it can help us live a healthy life and most importantly make our surrounding green and safe for our future.
In 2021, Mother Helpage constructed a public toilet in Kinnia, a town located east coast in the Trincomalee District of the Eastern Province of Sri Lanka. The place was badly devastated by the massive tsunami that resulted from the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake.
