Arab women turn trash into artistic works
Lebanese women, female Syrian and Palestinian refugees have joined hands making 250 artistic pieces from recycled materials retrieved from trash bins.
Up to 75 talented women took part in an exhibition, organized by the local society, "Al-Abaad," displaying their works, earning some money that help these cash-strapped females, particularly the Syrians and Palestinians, cope with living difficulties.
The activity serves a double purpose; enabling these limited-income, but rather skillful, ladies put some cash in their pockets and promoting recycling, an environmental issue of great significance nowadays worldwide.
