In the last quarter, we received many donations and each of them is significant support to our work. Thank you for your kindness and we wish to share our progress with all of you. Due to COVID-19 and the lockdown of Shanghai, we didn't get much chance to organize local clean-up activities in Shanghai. However, since we also organize clean-up programs national-wide, we managed to keep making contributions during this quarter.
First of all, we organized three national-wide clean-up activities on Jan. Mar. and May. 40 teams joined in and cleaned up 45 sites (sum up to 14750 square meters) in 30 cities. In total, 1277 volunteers and 268 staff cleaned up 1965kg of marine debris. It is amazing to see so many environmental enthusiasts gathering together to clean up the coast and promote environmental changes. We wish everyone who sees them could take a min to think about how to prevent waste from entering the ocean environment.
Secondly, we organized national-wide clean-up activities during World Environment Day (From 3rd Jun. to 26th Jun.). In total, 9540 volunteers from 41 cities organized 183 clean-up activities and cleaned up 10.48 tons of marine debris. Many volunteers said that they have never thought about the severity of the marine debris problem until they started cleaning up the coastline. And they wish more people could be aware of the problem and develop an environmental mindset through participating in such events.
Overall, this is a sour-sweet quarter. We want to thank you again for your donation. We could not achieve the above results and raise environmental awareness of the public without your help.
