Aligarh Muslim University Old Boys’ Association Kuwait Chapter Organized Beach Cleanup Campaign

On the morning of 12th November 2021, a beach cleanup campaign was organized by Aligarh Muslim University Old Boys’ Association (AMOUBA) near Kuwait Magic Beach in Abu Halifa. AMUOBA Kuwait is actively participating in social activities and this beach cleaning Campaign is also one step forward to the protect environment and make cleaner atmosphere for the people in Kuwait.

The campaign started with the sunrise around 06:00am. The morning cool sea breeze of early winter rejuvenated us, and we suited up our gloves and trash bags and set off in groups to clean the trash around the beach. We aimed to cover every spot of sand we could see. It was a true team effort: some of us wandered along the water while others trekked all the way up the beach sand. It was attended by almost 100 volunteers who selflessly cleaned about 1.5 km long strip of the beach.

Plastic cups, polythene bags, old food wrappers littered the landscape, a lot of it standing out against the nature for its artificially bright colors. Some of us even found small rusty metal rods and broken glasses which could have been dangerous to any person, flora or fauna.

Our team of 100 volunteers collected over 40 trash bags in just a few hours. Children were more enthusiastic and contributed a lot in collecting the waste- That’s a lot of litter! From plastic cups, bottles and bags to sharp metal rods, there were hundreds of items that had washed up on the shore or were abandoned by beachgoers.

people of all age group should contribute towards this cause. Yet unfortunately it makes you think: if we could find this trash on the surface of the sand in one day, how much is buried underneath from years of littering? Our team was proud enough to make such a small contribution towards saving our environment; this was our first effort, but it won’t be the last!

The President Mr. Tariq Ahmad Sibtey and Vice President Mr. Mohammed Nauroz Ahmad appreciated the teamwork and participation of all the volunteers. Indeed, it was one the remarkable event for AMUOBA Kuwait Chapter.

AMUOBA’s General Secretary Mr. Tariq Waseem and Joint Secretary Mr. Yusuf Abdullah organised the event efficiently and provided support to participants. In addition, AMUOBA EC team members consisting of Ms. Shazia Mansoor, Mr. Mateen-ur-Rahman, Dr. Iram Chaudhary, Mr. Ahteshamullah Khan and Ms. Talat Fatima were very supportive and helped in making the event a big success. As it is rightly said “alone we can do so little, together we can do so much”; without the team effort it would not have been possible. For AMUOBA Kuwait it was a big achievement and at the end team efforts paid off.

The volunteers were given campaign T-shirts and caps. Also, refreshment was served with traditional tea and certificates were given for each participant in recognition of their participation in the campaign.

Also, AMUOBA Kuwait Chapter extends its heartfelt gratitude to the sponsors- Universal Institute, Kuwait and Veolia, Middle East, Kuwait.

This event left a deep impact on each of us towards environmental awareness: it may seem like nothing to leave one small cup or plastic bag on the ground, but if one hundred people think the same way the impact is unfortunately huge. Next time when we will go to the beach, we will make sure that we take care of the proper garbage disposal, it makes a positive difference to the environment.
