Rebirth of the burnt hostel in Tanzania
Upon requests from the region, IHH restored the building of a hostel belonging to a school in the Kakangaga village in Tanzania that was totally destroyed by a fire.
Africa, Tanzania 12.11.2018

The Kakangaga Secondary School, located in the Kakangaga village that is populated by Muslims and is 4 kilometers away from Tanzania’s Kibondo city, was built by Muslim foundations and communities many years ago.

As a result of the fire that broke out last May in the girl’s hostel belonging to this secondary school, the building was totally destroyed.

As the students were performing isha (night) prayers in the masjid when the fire began, fortunately there were no deaths or injuries, however, everything in the hostel including the student’s books, clothing, personal belongings, and also the mattresses, bunkbeds and doors were burnt in the fire.

Following a request for help from the region, IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation teams took action and launched a renovation project for the building. With this project, the renovation of the building destroyed in the fire was completed, and we also provided financial and moral support to the people in the region.
