UNIVERSITY VOLUNTEERS HELP CLEAN VERA AFTER FLOODS

UAL continues to promote voluntary work among students and collaborates with various organisations

The clean up was held in conjunction with the municipality of Vera and the Civil Protection and it was carried out by thirty students, some of whom were Erasmus.

The cleanup, which was held last Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm took place at the Vera municipality ‘ground zero’ where many houses are still completely blocked with mud.

The students joined many volunteers from the council who provided food as well as all the necessary equipment for cleaning: wheelbarrows, overalls, masks and boots.

“When we arrived at Vera, we split into groups for the cleanup, helping residents to clean their homes and the many common areas of debris and dirt. It surprised us all to find that many houses were still full of thick mud,” said the director of the Student Action Group, Ramon Herrera. The operation was also attended by the President of the Neighborhood Association of the City of Vera who coordinated all tasks and expressed his gratitude to the volunteers from the university for their work.

UAL continues to promote voluntary work among students and collaborates with various organisations. Their next group effort will be a partnership with the Food Bank on October 30 and November 1, an activity for which the NGO has asked for the help of 500 volunteers throughout the whole of the province.
