CDS volunteers, members of the military, and people that live there collaborated together in doing a beach cleaning campaign starting in the early hours this last Saturday. Hundreds of people were armed with rakes, brooms to invade Metalio beach in order to clean five squared kilometers.
The purpose in cleaning up bottles, plastic, old shoes and other trash items was so that tourism could enjoy a clean beach. The vice minister of governing, Agustín Chacón thanked the local city hall for helping out in transporting the garbage away from the beach.
Comandos de Salvamento is a public agency that for more than 50 years has offered EMS and Community Health services via there main base and 32 other affiliated groups. The Mayor of Nejapa has decided to help the Nejapa Comandos base with a donation of 200 dollars that will go directly for ambulance gas. CDS Nejapa spends around a thousand dollars a month for gas doing local emergency runs within the Nejapa and Northern San Salvador area.
This will also help Comandos in Nejapa who will be very busy during semana santa while millions of Salvadorans take a week long vacation throughout the country.
