INS Valsura celebrates World Environment Day

A mass 'shramdaan' (voluntary contribution of labour for a public cause) was organized as part of World Environment Day celebrations under the UN declared theme 'Connecting People to Nature' on Saturday at Indian Naval Ship (INS) base Valsura in Jamnagar.

Under 'shramdaan', an extensive cleanliness drive was undertaken throughout the establishment focusing on cleaning drains and culverts from wild vegetation, plastic and other obstructions towards ensuring rain water harvesting. Total garbage collected during the drive from all over the establishment was disposed at the dumping yard of Jamnagar Municipal Corporation.

As part of the programme, a poster making competition was also organized for all personnel of Valsura including their families and kids. A total of 50 participants took part in the competition. Various topics on prevalent environmental issues were given as topics for the competition. The commanding officer gave away prizes to the winners of the competition.
