Within the scope of the ‘Jiyan’ project promoted by the Qamishlo Women’s Economy Committee, 3,800 fruit trees were planted in Derik.
The “Jiyan” project was launched by Rojava Ecological Women’s Platform to protect the environment. The project is carried out with the slogan ‘We will reach the forests against chemical weapons that try to turn the country into a desert and an earthquake zone’.
Many members of the Qamishlo Women’s Economic Committee planted 3,800 fruit trees. In this context, trees such as grapes, figs, mangoes and olives were planted in the village of Melamerze, east of Derik.
Meyasa Faruq, member of the Women’s Economic Committee, saluted all women on 8 March and said that they tried to increase the green space in the region by planting these trees.
The tree planted area consists of 120 decares. Tree planting is expected to continue until 4 April, the birthday of Leader Abdullah Öcalan.
