The re-construction of the city of Raqqa is underway. But rebuilding the city, after the four years of dark DAESH (ISIS) occupation, also means to make it greener and more citizen-friendly.

Which is why the Public Municipality Environment and Parks Committee, in collaboration with the Women’s Office, has planted 300 trees in the city center.

Tree planting began at Bab Baghdad town in the east of the city.

Following the liberation of the city, which had been chosen by DAESH as capital of its ‘Caliphate’, women took a lead in the reconstruction of Raqqa.

The city was liberated by the Syrian Democratic Forces in October 2017.

Co-chair Buseyna Mihemed confirmed that women were actively involved in the reconstruction work and added that the municipality is working with the people to make the city a better place.
