Members of the Dawoodi Bohra communities residing in Dayton, Columbus, and Cincinnati, Ohio got together in early April to undertake a clean-up of Ferndown Drive in Miamisburg, Ohio.
The clean-up was undertaken in association with Keep Montgomery County Beautiful, which works to improve the local environment through litter prevention and the beautification of the neighborhood, and Project Rise, the Dawoodi Bohras’ global initiative to improve life for the less fortunate among us via a wide range of initiatives in healthcare, nutrition, water and sanitation, environmental responsibility and conservation, and education.
Moiz Leelwala, a representative of the Dawoodi Bohra community of Ohio, commented,
“Dawoodi Bohra men, women, and children of the faith regularly volunteer all over the world to clean up their neighborhoods and encourage everyone to lead more sustainable lives, with the goal of eliminating the consumption of single-use plastic. We are grateful to Montgomery County officials for giving us this opportunity to serve and contribute to our local neighborhood.”
All volunteers were required to wear a mask and strictly follow COVID-19 guidelines to ensure everyone’s safety.
