How we cleaned up Langkawi Island
A talk by Ms Ulirika Player
Founder of Trash Hero Langkawi
Sejati Room, Park Avenue Hotel, Sungai Petani
Wednesday 19th April 2017, 8.00 pm
In search of a new adventure in the Far East, Uli sold most of her possessions and decided to throw caution to the wind. She left her home country of Sweden and moved to Langkawi. That was five years ago. Since then Uli has never looked back. But after much sun bathing, cocktail sipping and watching stunning sunsets on the beach Uli found that there is more to life than just ‘chilling.’ Being Swedish she is very much an environmentalist and cares about trash disposal and recycling. She also begins to notice and became frustrated that the beautiful island that she lives in is becoming systematically soiled by excessive use of plastic, thrash being disposed of indiscriminately and people generally do not recycle.
On a trip to KoLipe, she discovered an organisation called Trash Heroes. She participated in a programme sorting out rubbish on a beautiful beach. On her return Uli became inspired to start something similar. Despite multiple challenges, she founded Trash Hero Langkawi.
Supported by hotels, LADA, the Rotary Club of Langkawi, locals, expats and tourists. The Trash Heroes of Langkawi has gone from strength to strength.
In a joint project with Rotary Club of Tanjung Bungah and Persatuan Kebudayaan India IPG Kampus Pulau Pinang, a box of English books were donated to the library of SJKT Lubuk Segintah. It is hoped that this will encourage the reading habit and improve the standard of English amongst students.
The World's Greatest Meal is an ongoing project to raise funds for PolioPlus, an arm of The Rotary Foundation, which initiated the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. Every USD raised is matched by USD2 from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, tripling your contribution.
We are THIS CLOSE to ending polio globally. From 300,000 cases a year in 1988, so far this year, there have been only 5 cases of polio detected globally (i.e. in Afghanistan and Pakistan, the only two countries with polio cases.)
This the pictorial story of WGM #3660. Rotarians, Rotaractors and friends in Malaysia, USA, India, Bangladesh and New Zealand participated to End Polio globally.
