Rubble Removal in Eight Communities in Aleppo Governorate – Phase I

During the conflict, the northern and eastern Aleppo countryside experienced intensive battles, these battles have directly affected the infrastructure (hospitals - schools - roads…etc.), most of the civilian infrastructure have been destroyed completely or partially. Moreover, many private properties such as buildings, shops and markets were also destroyed and large number of residents of this area have been displaced. Recently due to relative stability, good security situation, and forced displacement of the population from other parts of Syria, thousands of families have returned or have been displaced to the targeted communities and that emerged the urgent needs to be provided as the following:


  1. Removing the accumulated debris in the residential neighborhoods, which have become as a home to rodents and insects and a major cause of the spread diseases, especially in some areas where rubble placed was used as garbage dumps.
  2. Removing the rubble from the streets and public squares for allowing the residents using these streets safely and become accessible within community areas.

This project seeks to remedy the aforementioned problem and meet the urgent needs above by providing the Syrian Civil Defense (SCD) with the required equipment and financial support for its staff in order to respond to the emergencies caused by the conflict events in eight communities in Northern Aleppo Governorate through its first phase and the works will be extended to cover additional communities through its second phase that will start after the success of the first one. Implementation of this project will reflect positively on its beneficiaries and improve the livelihood of whole communities living in the region.
