Moruga residents took action earlier this month as they decided that something should be done about the poor roads in their area. 

However, instead of protesting, residents from Grand Chemin to Marac decided to pitch in and fill the potholes themselves.

The I AM Moruga Foundation shared a video to their Facebook page on November 26, 2018, showing villagers who gathered together and turned the event into an outing, laughing and bonding as they worked together. 

 

"Hats of to the young and old men of the communities from Grand Chemin to Marac, coming together to solve a problem that has been affecting all of them."

"Instead of staging outrageous, fiery protests, they protested by doing something beneficial to their communities and still send the message in a positive way."

"There is still hope, love and unity in our communities. Growth and development in Moruga," the page said. 

Citizens approved of the action.

"This is what the country needs right now, peace, love, togetherness.. Gr8 job guys."

Joanne Gervers:

"This is the love Moruga people have for each other a blessed community."

Aikida Edwards Augustine:
