Hasaka, SANA – Hasaka Education Directorate agreed with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) to rehabilitate 75 schools in the northeastern Hasaka province.
Marwan al-Suweilih of the Directorate told SANA reporter that his department will carry out the rehabilitation works while the UNICEF will fund them.
He estimated the cost of the rehabilitation at around SYP 80 million, noting that the works will include fixing doors, windows, blackboards and sanitary utilities.
Al-Suweilih said the maintenance works will take about 15 days to be ready by the time the new study year begins, noting however that 7 of the targeted schools had sustained severe damage due to the terrorists’ acts and their rehabilitation will take several months.
