Girê Spi Canton Assembly Economic Committee implemented a communal project to support the refugees in Girê Spi Camp.
The project will be implemented in an area of 300 acres and will be put into service in the village of Samaria to the west of Ain Issa. As part of the project, summer vegetables were planted.
According to the Agriculture Committee, 80 refugee families in Girê Spî Camp will benefit from the project. The committee will provide them with all necessary agricultural materials such as seeds, fertilizers and pesticides for the project to be successful. Generators were also provided for the irrigation of vegetables from the wells.
Egîd Bozan, co-chair of the Economy Committee of the Girê Spî Canton Assembly, told ANHA that this project is an important step in strengthening the economy of the refugees based on the idea of communal and cooperatives and added: “We support the displaced migrant farmers by implementing such projects in difficult humanitarian and economic conditions. We provide them with seeds, fertilizers, soil and other materials such as generators and fuel.”
Bozan said that another project was started for wheat planting in Hîşe district and 26 families benefited from it. According to Bozan, the area used for that project is 250 decares. Bozan noted that the Economic Committee provided all the necessary needs, such as land, at affordable prices.
