WATCH: Filipino creates huge sand art on UAE’s #StayHome campaign

A Dubai-based sand artist has created a simple yet heartwarming message for UAE residents who are currently abiding by the country’s call to remain indoors.

2018 The Filipino Times Awards Artist of the Year Nathaniel Alapide created a huge sand art at Kite Beach with the hashtag #StayHome both in Arabic and English, in collaboration with Brand Dubai, the creative arm of the Dubai Media Office.

“It ‘s a project with @DMunicipality, @Brand_Dubai from @dubaimediaoffice to deliver a special message to evryone in our city to work together to flatten the curve of the spread of COVID-19 by staying at home and follow the advice of the Dubai Government/authorities in preventing the further spread of the virus,” said Alapide in an interview with The Filipino Times.

Residents are currently advised to stay within their homes as the country’s ‘National Disinfection Programme‘ takes place across the UAE where all public transport and movement come to a temporary halt in the evening, from 8:00 pm to 6:00 am the following morning which runs until March 28.

Alapide advises fellow Filipinos to adhere to the country’s rules as their way to help the country get rid of the coronavirus disease: “I would like to tell our fellow Filipinos to stay home, practice social distancing, wash hands and always be updated from the advice of our healthworkers and the Dubai authorities, we can make this better by acting together and supporting each other.”

Apart from the ‘National Disinfection Programme’, both public and private sectors have also been advised to start working from home from March 29, Sunday – as the government mandates only 30% of a skeletal workforce should be allowed to be physically present in their respective offices.
