Dubai Municipality launched a new campaign yesterday, where they distributed over 1000 umbrellas to the public, because sometimes even SPF 50 isn’t good enough.

More umbrellas will continue to be distributed throughout the city for a few more days, particularly in the more populated areas.

Unfortunately, it’s not because they’re expecting rain, but because it’s just way too hot outside. And according to stats, it’s only going to get hotter…

The umbrella initiative was launched for everyone in Dubai to protect them from the scorching heat of the sun – especially people who do not own cars, and their work requires them to walk in the afternoon, where the temperature is high during that period of the year.
