The Shabab Sahra, an Azallabeh Bedouin association of young adults from Rum village, took the initiative to spend a day in April cleaning-up the desert which comprises the Wadi Rum Protected Area, a UNESCO World Heritage mixed natural and cultural site, characterized by its outstanding desert landscape. Smiles all round as they team-up with ASEZA, the Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority who manages the Protected Area, on a good day of volunteering. The initiative is considered a good practice to preserve the integrity of the park and its stunning landscape, which it is hoped could be replicated in the future.
