Founded in Raqqa in 2018, the Society aims bring long-term improvement in health care and the environment. Weqaya’s vision is to promote transparency, and respect for diversity, with the aim of making Raqqa Governorate clean and environmentally safe.
Weqaya’s projects promote a culture of hygiene, health care and environmental protection among members of society. The Society manages educational and awareness initiatives, and psychosocial support programs for the most severely affected groups. It also provides disease control and the protection of public facilities.
In addition, Weqaya works hard to preserve agricultural and animal wealth – the two basic sources of livelihood for Raqqa residents. By working in this way, the Weqaya Society can help bring normality back to the people of Raqqa and so encourage them to return to the province.
