Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints took to the mountain region of Nova Friburgo, a municipality in the state of Rio de Janeiro in southeastern Brazil, to clean the city on Saturday, 19 February 2011.

More than a thousand Latter-day Saints, Mormon missionaries and friends of the Church used brooms, shovels and wheelbarrows to clean the city’s streets, hospitals and schools after devastating floods and landslides in January. The Church worked with local government leaders to provide the tools for the clean-up and then donated the tools to the city. The volunteers were dressed in the familiar bright yellow Mormon Helping Hands vests.
