The Fada Association for Community Development, in cooperation with the Union of Craftsmen and a number of community-based associations in Tartous, established the fourth Fada Bazaar in the old Tartous hall on the sea corniche.
The bazaar lasts for three days, as it offers handicrafts, sweets, foodstuffs, and detergents.
And the head of the Federation of Craftsmen in the governorate, Ahmed Salma, said in a statement to SANA that the bazaar supports the owners of handicrafts, heritage handicrafts, and small projects, and provides an opportunity for them to introduce their products.
The Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Association, Rine Arnouk, said: The bazaar includes about 40 participants, and it is the fourth of the association and the result of cooperation with the Union of Craftsmen and seven development associations working in the field of family and children, and provides an introduction to its services aimed at supporting individuals and small projects and providing them with a space to promote their products.
Engineer Ammar Bilal, a member of the Tartous City Council, indicated that the role of the council is to secure the place, organize, supervise and provide all possible facilities to support crafts and national industry in all its forms, which is one of the first tasks of the city council.
A number of participants considered that the bazaar is like other promotional and marketing activities that contribute to expanding the circle of markets and consumers. Rima Maarouf, who works in the field of butchers and bags, said: Multiple participations create new markets and new consumers.
Eman Abdel Rahman explained that she learned the craft of making scented candles by hand about a year ago because of the circumstances imposed by the current reality to invest time and find a financial return, even if it is not commensurate with the cost, but the most important thing is to work for the individual and community benefit together.
Nour Anis indicated that her studies in the field of women's arts gave her the opportunity to innovate and renew to make a Christmas tree using wood, and add handmade shapes and toys to it to provide a tree and Christmas decorations from simple tools and low cost as Christmas approaches.
Azza Qarfoul, who took advantage of social networking sites to learn the natural soap industry, saw that the handmade industry remains the best in terms of maintaining the quality and continuity of the product, while Kamal Haddad explained that his work in the field of natural honey industry and their multiple participations aim to provide the product at a discounted price suitable for the various segments of society.
