Lebanese Army soldiers and environmental campaigners participated in a global day to raise awareness about the importance of keeping beaches clean, so that everyone can enjoy them.
President Michel Sleiman and Prime Minister Saad El-Hariri attended the launching of the “Big Blue” cleaning station at Ramlet al-Baida.They also met a group of participating Army and volunteer divers. The project is organized in cooperation between Environment and Youth and Sports ministries and the local municipalities. Hundreds of volunteers removed rubbish from more than 70 beaches along Lebanon’s seashore. School and university students also participated including volunteers from the Civil Defense.
We, at KSPS, have also volunteered and headed out to help keep our beaches clean and enjoy our beautiful land.
So beach clean up continues....Lebanon has very beautiful beaches that need to be taken care of. We truly hope we don't need to clean- up anymore!!!
Big thank you to 'Cedars' Organization and especially to Mrs. Iffat Shatila. And of course, a special thank you to the parents who volunteered with their children and helped at the event...
