Muscat Municipality and PDO begin beach clean-up campaign

February 14, 2019

As an attempt to promote partnership with local community and to spread culture of preserving environment, Muscat Municipality, PDO and Be’ah jointly launched a campaign, titled ‘Better than It Was’ at the Ghubra beach on Wednesday.

A number of officials of Muscat Municipality participated in the campaign besides representatives of Shura Council, citizens of the wilayat of Bausher and some activists and local associations interested in volunteering.

Qais al Qashri, director general of Health Affairs at Muscat Municipality, said the campaign was mooted as a result of the interest shown by both Muscat Municipality and PDO. He added, “It will run for six months to cover all the beaches of Muscat governorate. “Each month will be dedicated to one wilayat of the governorate.”

Be’ah is contributing significantly to the campaign by providing all requirements needed for the volunteers.

Muscat Municipality emphasised that such campaigns play a significant role in educating citizens and residents of the value of preserving environment in their surroundings.
