Number of Volunteers across Iraqi Cities
Nestled in the Kurdistan Region, Erbil serves as the bustling capital that has faced multiple challenges related to water scarcity. The city’s arid climate and limited water sources have caused an ever-increasing need for drinking water each year. However, with a soaring population growth, the available water supply has become scarce and under immense pressure. Moreover, the rapid expansion of housing units has led to the neglect of greenery and consequently, a scarcity of public parks and recreational areas, resulting in detrimental effects on the physical and mental wellbeing of residents. But all hope is not lost as Hasar, a leading organization, has taken the reins to carry out innovative and strategic projects aimed at combating climate change and increasing the amount of greenery in Erbil. With a specific focus on household water treatment, Hasar has mobilized a force of more than 300 passionate volunteers, making it the first organization to spearhead these essential initiatives in Erbil.
