400 boy scouts participate in Doha beach cleaning campaign
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.
