SERDANG, 4 Okt – About 100 people have participated in a programme planting trees and cleaning the graveyard to beautify the surrounding environment of the Islamic Cemetery Kariah Serdang, Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), here.

The mini programme aims to turn the cemetery into a cemetery park by beautifying the surrounding environment with flowers and cleaning the cemetery through plogging activity.
It also indirectly helps instil positive values onto the participants about nature as well as to keep their body healthy.
