The third week, ending on April 27, will be about planting tree seedlings and whitewashing of greenery.

Activities until May 4 will focus on cleaning and landscaping the yards of elderly people and the areas of nursing homes.

The final fifth week will prioritize clearing debris from the surroundings of water bodies such as rivers and lakes.
