Doha, Qatar – Embodying its pledge to community responsibility, Doha Festival City, Qatar's premier shopping, dining, and entertainment destination, has partnered with the Ministry of Municipality and Environment to commemorate "The World Cleanup Day" on September 16. This impactful alliance comes as part of the #FestivalCares CSR Program for the mall to underscore the environmental and societal hazards posed by abandoned vehicles and equipment in the Municipality of Al Daayen.

From September 17th to 24rd, visitors to the Doha Festival City Mall will be enlightened through an informative exhibition. The event aims to raise awareness on the adverse impacts of neglected vehicles, touching on the environment, aesthetics, and safety. The initiative calls upon the entire community to actively participate in addressing these concerns, thereby ensuring a more sustainable future.

Robert Hall, Doha Festival City's General Manager, expressed his thoughts on this partnership by stating, "By joining forces with the Ministry, we're reaffirming our commitment to environmental responsibility, which is rooted in our guiding philosophy of "it's my place, my choice." We urge every individual, resident, and visitor to partake in this noble endeavor, making choices that prioritize the environment and the aesthetic harmony of our Municipality."

Dr. Fayqa Abdullah Ashkanani, Director of the Public Relations Department at The Ministry of Municipality and Environment, remarked on the Ministry's annual recognition of World Cleanliness Day. She stated, "In collaboration with the Joint Committee for Removing Abandoned Cars and Equipment, we annually honor World Cleanliness Day to emphasize the collective responsibility of maintaining cleanliness across all societal sections. Our ministry actively rolls out awareness campaigns to familiarize the public with the Public Cleanliness Law and highlight our commitment to upholding the highest hygiene standards. These efforts have not only positioned Qatari cities on the global map but have also led to six of them being awarded the World Health Organisation's healthy city certificate in 2022. Furthermore, they've been inducted into the UNESCO Learning Cities Network, underscoring our relentless pursuit to enhance the health, well-being, and quality of life for our citizens."

Doha Festival City remains steadfast in championing sustainable and community-centric initiatives. Through this collaboration, the establishment further solidifies its determination to nurture a culture of environmental mindfulness and safeguard the beauty and safety of the Municipality of Al Daayen. The community, inclusive of residents, businesses, and visitors, are all invited to support and be an active part of this green movement.

At the heart of this partnership lies the #FestivalCares initiative, a robust drive committed to fostering deep-rooted relationships with the mall's diverse stakeholders – from retailers, shoppers, and staff to local governing bodies, groups, and charitable entities.
