In addition to the distribution of aid in many places the world, IHH also continues to strive to support the oppressed, deprived and needy with the construction of permanent works. IHH constructs mosques and madrasas for Muslims in various geographies to bring a smile to the faces of people. In this scope, with the support of businessmen Kemal Başaran and Ahmet Soyak, two mosques were added to our mosque projects in Africa. The Soyak-Başaran Mosque Project established two mosques in the Wadajir region of the city of Mogadishu and in the Hanane-2 Neighborhood in Baidoa.

250 people can worship in the congregation

The mosque in Mogadishu has the capacity to host 250 people to worship in the congregation, and a madrasa was also built next to it. It is estimated that 50 children will receive education each term. The opening of the mosque was attended by H.E. Mehmet Yılmaz the Turkish Ambassador to Somalia, Kemal Başaran’s son Mustafa Başaran, Ahmet Soyak’s son-in-law Ergün Taşpınar, IHH officials and Somalian Muslims.
