Employees of the Al Shirawi Group recently participated in the 2014 Clean Up UAE campaign organized by the Emirates Environmental Group (EEG). The clean up took place in the Nad Al Sheeba area of Dubai where close to 10,000 volunteers from various organizations took up their gloves to clean up specific areas of the Emirate.
The campaign was launched by Dubai Municipality on 6th November and includes cleaning of public places, such as beaches, parks with the participation of companies, schools, organizations, government departments and all categories of the society.
This year the Al Shirawi team was observed with the banner “We Support The Cause” which is aimed at inspiring and empowering individuals and organizations to come forward and spread the awareness towards keeping our environment clean and green.
