Solid waste management and vector control through community mobilization in Deir-ez-Zor governorate

Country Program: RSRP (Syria)

Partner: UN-Ocha/SHF

Duration: 01.05.2019 – 31.10.2019

Cluster: WASH

Our current Garbage Collection Campaign in Mayadeen is realized through community mobilization and serves to clean the environment from solid waste. The conduction of Hygiene Awareness Sessions for a clean environment (door to door visits, group discussions, distribution of garbage bags) supplements the measures by spreading key messages among the community members.

We further included the spraying of pesticides to eliminate bugs (especially sandflies/mosquitos that transmit Laishmaniasis).

All the mentioned activities serve to protect people’s health and reduce the risk of epidemic outbreaks.
