The Ministry of Municipal and Environment (MME) has launched the "The Little Inspector" campaign, as part of the efforts of the voluntary work support Initiative committee under the slogan "Your safety is my safety" and within the framework of the state's efforts to limit the spread of (Covid-19).

The campaign aims to educate children about the importance of maintaining food safety in homes, training them on the basics of dealing with delivery services, the methods of dealing with a small inspector while receiving food items from a delivery boy, and the procedures necessary to ensure that the food is for safe human consumption.

In this regard, a remote meeting was held via the video conference with a group of children to communicate with a number of health and food control inspectors, as the discussion focused on the mechanism of dealing with foodstuffs that reach homes through delivery services, whether from restaurants or from various food facilities, and how to apply the necessary health requirements.

Head of the Health Control Department of Al Rayyan Municipality, Majid Burhan Al Zaidan presented a set of general guidelines, including the need to wear masks and gloves for the "small inspector" and the correct way to do so, and to ensure that the delivery boy also wears them when receiving the food, leaving a safe distance between them and other relevant instructions.

He stressed that the aim of this project is to achieve the vision of the MME by involving the children in the community service and making use of their effective energy by making them a role in fighting this pandemic to protect them and their families, and introducing them to the most important health requirements required in food.

Al Zaidan pointed out that the role of the supervisory authorities in the ministry is to monitor health outside homes and in food establishments, while there is a large role of the small inspector, to cover the part that the supervisory authorities cannot cover in the homes, to ensure safe food access to the consumer, noting that the project is continuing to include the largest segment of children in homes to take advantage of their effective energy to spread awareness and healthy culture.
