Hello everyone! Join us to celebrate Qatar National Day cleaning up one of Qatar’s most beautiful islands and beaches. We’re going to the Island by Mafjar! This is a family and kid-friendly event.
Please note there are not any facilities/services at the cleanup location. Anyone under 18 years of age needs to be accompanied by an adult.
The focus of the cleanup will be on the island. People must be willing to get wet/wall/swim to the island, depending how high the tide is. However, we will have a small team working on the beach on the mainland for those who don’t want to get wet or don’t know how to swim.
AGENDA FOR THE DAY:
-4x4 is not needed, sedans can reach, but SUV’s ARE PREFERRED. If you decide to drive on your own be advised that if you take the wrong road and you don’t have 4x4 YOU WILL GET STUCK in sand, believe us. If you don’t know the road, come with the group in convoy.
