Kuwait Times - - LOCAL - By Ab­del­latif Sharaa

Sev­eral vol­un­tary groups par­tic­i­pated in a ma­jor cam­paign or­ga­nized re­cently to clean Kuwait’s beaches from Doha to Eshairej. One of those cam­paigns was car­ried this past week­end by the ‘Kuwait is Green Oa­sis’ en­vi­ron­men­tal group and the ‘Pre­ven­tion is our Goal’ vol­un­tary team. Nearly 400 boy scouts from Jahra Ed­u­ca­tion Zone were brought to Doha beach, which was lit­tered by var­i­ous left­overs, plas­tic nets, dead an­i­mals , pic­nick­ers’ trash, glass bot­tles and other harm­ful ma­te­rial. The boy scouts col­lected large amounts of trash and filled them into plas­tic bags to be col­lected by Kuwait Mu­nic­i­pal­ity.

Dr Musaed Al-Enezi, Pres­i­dent of the ‘Pre­ven­tion is our Goal Team,’ said that such ac­tiv­i­ties aim to spread pub­lic aware­ness re­gard­ing the im­por­tance of keep­ing the en­vi­ron­ment clean, with spe­cial em­pha­sis on beaches where dif­fer­ent kinds of wildlife fre­quent, and thus the area should be kept clean at all times. He said the team is now con­cen­trat­ing on schools to keep stu­dents in­formed of the im­por­tance of a clean and pol­lu­tants-free en­vi­ron­ment.
