A beach cleanup was carried out in the Al Ahyaa District of Hurghada on Monday February 10, 2020 with thanks to Friend of Rotary Club El Gouna, Carol King, who arranged everything with Waleed Ramadan of the Ministry of Environment's National Parks of Egypt and HEPCA.
The tide and the strong north wind brings plastic bags, bottles, and other waste, washing it up on the beaches which can endanger the marine life. It was an especially blustery, cold morning, with a real feel of just 13 degrees on the beach at 10 am. The stunning coastline and turquoise skies ensured an enjoyable day as a long stretch of the beach was cleared with the kind help of the volunteers, and HEPCA staff who collected the rubbish for recycling.
Save the dates for the annual community event of El Gouna Earth Week 2020 which will be held this year 28th March to 4th April. More details will be posted on the Facebook page: EarthWeekElGouna
