Idlib Summer: A Joint Service Campaign by Four Humanitarian Organizations to Decorate Cornice Highway
Idlib has hosted thousands of displaced people from other provinces, yet it has also been the subject of cruel and systematic bombing by the regime and Russia
On August 3rd, four Humanitarian organizations operating in Idlib city in northwest Syria launched “Idlib Summer,” a joint public service campaign. The campaign aims to restore and service the Cornice highway in the southern part of the city. This area serves as a breath of fresh air for civilians.
These humanitarian organizations participate in public service campaigns to improve the living conditions of cities and towns and provide services to civilians, including establishing and servicing camps, campaigns to combat the Coronavirus, and other campaigns aimed at helping civilians in northwestern Syria.
Syria Civil Defense, Hathi Hayati volunteering group, Violet Organization, and Syria Relief are all taking part in a public service campaign to prepare 550 meters of Corniche highway in Idlib city. This area is regarded as a public gathering area for Idlib residents and families to commune and escape the city's scorching heat.
The activities of the project include a month-long process of repairing infrastructure, planting greenery, and cleaning, painting, and decorating the area. The teams will build stony benches and tables along the road and provide waste bins and light lamps to ensure that Corniche road will be safe, hospitable, and fully illuminated for the residents..
In recent years, Idlib has hosted thousands of displaced people from other provinces, yet it has also been the subject of cruel and systematic bombing by the regime and Russia, destroying the city’s housing, infrastructure, and vital facilities.
Apart from ensuring the safety of civilians in times of war, the humanitarian organizations also work hard to provide community services through early recovery programs in order to improve the living conditions of the people, especially those living in areas that have been bombed and destroyed by the regime and Russia.
NW Syria is in desperate need of services, therefore humanitarian organizations are doing their best to help with the resources they have. However, they can only meet a portion of the needs amid the regime's and Russia's ongoing bombing and destruction of infrastructure and vital public facilities.
