IN conjunction with World Environmental Health Day, Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) organised a “Jom Sihat” carnival to promote a healthier and more sustainable Earth.

The event took place at the MBSA Convention Centre at Section 13, Shah Alam.

Shah Alam residents were able to learn more about vital environmental issues and how to do their part to care for their surroundings.

Educational activities included a health forum titled “Environmental Health, Everyone’s Responsibility” and a Pocket Talk session on the Black Soldier Fly and the link between toxic environments and disease.

There were also fun competitions on the most beautiful cat, healthy dish and food decoration plus a Dengue Explore Race.

At the carnival, MBSA also gave recognition to agencies and individuals actively contributing to the field of public health under its administration.

Notable awards were presented including those for the “Suara Shah Alam: Popular vs Clean” and the “Tiktok 3C” programmes.

MBSA also recognised the Seda-10 (Search & Destroy Aedes 10 Minutes) agents of MBSA.

They comprised 24 dedicated council members who actively mobilise communities within MBSA’s jurisdiction to combat the Aedes menace.

Present were MBSA council member Muhammad Shakir Ameer Mohideen, Malaysian Association of Environmental Health (MAEH) president Megat Azman Megat Mokhtar and National Association of Wives of Civil Servants and Women Civil Servants (Puspanita) chairperson Dr Faezah Kassim.
