Indian Community cleans Wadis / Hiking trails across Oman as part of Sewa Utsav

In an attempt to raise awareness about climate change and environment protection, Indian community members joined hands for cleaning wadis / hiking trails across three different cities in Oman on 9th April 2022 as part of Community Service Fortnight / Sewa Utsav. The members from Indian Social Club (ISC), Adventure Oman and other Indian nationals joined hands to advocate for a clean and green Oman.

The beaches and hiking trails at Bander Al Khairan near Muscat were cleaned and approximately 200 Kg of trash was collected and properly disposed of by the enthusiastic participants. Ambassador Amit Narang commended the efforts by the Indian community, and hoped that such activities will go a long way in instilling sensitivity towards conservation of environment.

The wadi / hiking trail activities were also organized in Sohar and Salalah. ISC members in Sohar cleaned a wadi and collected plastic and other trash. The ISC members in Salalah went on a hike and collected trash on the way, thus engaging the community and raising awareness on conservation of environment. The activities educated the participants towards re-cycling and adopting a sustainable lifestyle as well as not littering public places. This was another  collective initiative of Indian community to contribute towards cleaner and greener Oman.
