Marking the International Volunteer Day, about 50 volunteers from “Al Nada Charity” made a panoramic painting entitled ” My Country is Always Sweet” which was set up on Harasta highway in Damascus.
The painting, which is 170 m long and 170 m high, features the most famous archeological sites in the Syrian provinces.
The Painting took nearly a year to be completed under the supervision of three plastic artists who are volunteers in the charity who helped the children to materialize their ideas, according to Chairman of the Board of Directors in the charity, Maysa Raslan.
She indicated that setting up the painting on Harasta highway confirms that Syria is raising from destruction left by terrorism and is recovering thanks to the sacrifices made by the Syrian Arab Army which restored safety and stability to the country.
For their part, the plastic artists Ammar Farah, Oweis al-Hamwi and Ahamad kamal clarified that the painting was drawn on raw canvas with acrylic colors, featuring 30 Syrian archeological landmarks chosen in cooperation with the children to express the Syrian human and civilized heritage.
International Volunteer Day is celebrated on December 5 This year, the volunteer day is entitled “Volunteers Build Resilient Communities”.
