Ramadan cleaner; safer
The campaign aims to decrease the number of traffic accidents during Ramadan. Drivers tend to drive very fast, particularly right before sunset as they’re trying to rush home to break the fast.
The participants are distributing dates and other things in small plastic bags for drivers to eat Iftar, the meal to break the fast, so they don’t rush home before sunset and cause accidents.
The campaign also aims to distribute food to poor families, based on a field study that surveyed families in the area.
Mojeeb Al-Fatish, secretary-general of the foundation, said the foundation is also holding a cleaning campaign in the area where food is going to be distributed, because the foundation’s members believe that cleaning is a responsibility for all.
The Hemmatt Shabab team launched a cleaning campaign on June 23, aiming to boost people’s health and environmental awareness and encourage people to do voluntary activities.
Several volunteers were happy to participate in this campaign as it will affect Yemeni society positively. Ismaeel Al-Sad’ai, a volunteer on the team, said many shop owners and other residents liked the idea of cooperating with the volunteers.
Abdulqader Helal, secretary of the capital, visited the team and participated with them. He praised the development campaigns the foundation holds in Sana’a and in several other governorates.
In a meeting with Al-Fatish, Helal said he supports such vital campaigns as they aim to decrease poverty and help needy members of society.
Helal also called upon the foundation to adopt the Typical Street Project, which, as secretary of the capital, he intends to implement in order to boost health and environmental awareness among Yemeni society. He said it’s important to make Sana’a a clean city.
