The school and mosque we built in the center of 10 African villages, that is the first and largest Islamic education center in the region, is a source of hope for the local community. We will continue with all our power to materialize similar projects in all the countries and regions where needed. I would like to thank all those who contributed and assisted in materializing these projects.”
