A young com­mu­nity re­porter tack­les lit­ter­ing by pick­ing up and dis­pos­ing of mas­sage par­lour cards in Al Nahda 2, Dubai.

She goes around her com­mu­nity, picks up the cards and dis­poses of them in the trash

Gulf News - - The Views -

Alot of re­ports have been pub­lished in Gulf News about mas­sage par­lour cards left on cars around the city. Most peo­ple just get an­noyed by these cards and throw them on the road, which makes the place look un­tidy.

Day by day, it looks like the peo­ple who place these cards in car win­dows are be­com­ing bolder.

They come by at any time of the day and leave mul­ti­ple cards on each car.

As a res­i­dent, it dis­turbs me a lot and as a young per­son, I can­not stop those men from leav­ing a trail of cards.

So, I thought of help­ing the mu­nic­i­pal­ity work­ers in my area, which is Al Nahda 2 in Dubai.

I walked around and re­moved mas­sage cards and other ad­ver­tise­ment busi­ness cards from many car win­dows. I col­lected more than 100 cards and threw them in the mu­nic­i­pal­ity bin.

When­ever I am free, I take a walk around my build­ing and try to re­move as many cards from the cars as pos­si­ble, which at least helps the mu­nic­i­pal­ity work­ers who must find it dif­fi­cult to pick up the cards from the ground.

Un­for­tu­nately, there is no de­crease in the mas­sage cards in my area.

It seems like the more the mu­nic­i­pal work­ers re­move them, the more fre­quently the men visit the area to leave cards be­hind. I sym­pa­thise with the work­ers and so am just do­ing this as so­cial work. based in Dubai.
