In the later part of the year, Joy News in collaboration with the Accra Metropolitan Authority (AMA) started the Joy CleanGhana campaign to drive the message of keeping a clean environment to people in the capital.

The Joy News team joined forces with AMA environmental health officers and visited selected communities to inspect, educate and ensure they keep personal hygiene as well as their environment clean.

Below are pictures from the campaign…
