We are establishing parks in the earthquake zone where women can exercise and breathe outdoors

After the earthquake in Hatay, areas where women could get away from housework and spend healthy time were also destroyed. We started to install parks in this region where women can relax and exercise in the open air. So far, we have established 3 women’s sports areas in cooperation with municipalities in Antakya, Samandağ and Defne districts. We have also included children’s playgrounds right next to the women’s sports areas. Thus, women can benefit from these parks both by themselves and with their children.

   

A woman we met in the park established in Serinyol neighbourhood of Antakya shared the following with us:

“Previously, we used to take walks with women at certain times of the day. It was very good that sports equipment was installed and you could use them. While using the equipment, we have fun and do sports with women. Thank you.”

You can access all the activities we have been carrying out in Hatay for 1 year in MaviKalem Hatay Document published in February.
