On the occasion of Earth Day, Child Foundation's local offices along with sponsored children and their families took part in a clean-up effort on the beaches of the Persian Gulf. Participants formed a human chain as they cleaned the beach, which was highly affected by Nowruz celebrations.
Their hard work resulted in the collection of 200 bags of garbage. In an effort to highlight the importance of a clean environment, each child under the age of ten was allocated a small portion of the beach in which they were responsible for its clean up. After the cleanup, the children participated in an art competition using sand in their designated area.
