WUJ Project Gotong Royong will take a break for April as we observe Ramadan and Hari Raya Aidilfitri.
WUJ Project Gotong Royong
First launched under the name "WUJ Kampung Clean-Up" from January to December 2019, "WUJ Project Gotong Royong" returns after a 3-year hiatus due to the pandemic as a revamped initiative which aims to provide assistance for the Orang Pulau community on Pulau Ubin in upkeeping their homes and courtyards.
Assisting our Residents
Today, only 30 residents remain on Pulau Ubin, a far cry from the 2,000 inhabitants who once resided on Pulau Ubin in the 1960s. The residents who remain have aged gracefully and have found it challenging to upkeep their beautiful kampung.
WUJ hopes to alleviate some of their burden by offering these residents the necessary manpower required to help keep their homes and courtyards clean and safe — at least once a month.
