“The Nile River is the essence of life in Egypt and is currently in crisis as a result of many polluting human activities that threaten its future. The public’s passive attitude and actions towards the river will lead to a much worse state and will negatively impact the society as a whole. As public health is endangered and pollution rates increase, we decided to be part of the solution. Thus, participating in the clean-up of the Nile, as an integral part of our scope to protect the oceans and the environment. The cleaning operations provided an opportunity to involve employees in volunteer activities, support the community and learn more about the protection and preservation of our oceans. During the event, precautionary health measures were taken by our volunteers.
