At 4 yrs and 10 mths, Jackie Lim was Chek Jawa’s youngest hero today. Accompanying her parents who were part of the Dow Chemicals ICCS 2010 contingent, she gladdened the hearts of all who saw her at work on Chek Jawa’s southern shore.
Taking full advantage of her light weight, she ventured onto parts of the muddy shore adults had to be cautious about for fear of sinking! Deftly using her pair of tongs under the watchful eyes of her parents, she made quick work of many pieces of plastic accumulated since last year’s cleanup.
Jackie volunteered to help carry one of the abandoned kelong fish nets retrieved by adults from the shore. Calling out the items for the data recorder to note, Jackie showed that size doesn’t matter.
One can start caring for the environment at a very early age.
Kudos to Jackie Lim!
