Facing difficult daily lives, increasing social needs along with a desire to help others by providing care and services, young people are volunteering with the Revolutionary Civic Council in Moaret Mesrin to implement a new campaign called "Beautify Moaret Mesrin."

The "Beautify Moaret Mesrin" campaign is raising awareness among people about the importance of maintaining hygiene in neighborhoods where destruction of city infrastructure has led to an absence of basic services. According to an Idleb Press reporter, quoting a volunteer, "It has to be different leadership or another organized system that takes care of social needs and civic services, instead of government systems."

The campaign will run three days a week and volunteers will help to reduce the prevalence of disease caused by the accumulation of garbage in the streets, broken sewer systems and the spread of insects in the city. Not just cleaning streets and filling holes, the volunteers will also create beauty in paintings and murals, trying to raise the spirits of the Moaret Mesrin community.
