The organizing committee of a fundraiser in aid of Masjid wusda in Wajir County is appealing for help ahead of a grand fundraiser mid this month towards the construction of a modern mosque.
Located off Moyale road towards ADC market, the mosque which is also known as Haji Fure mosque, named after its founder – Haji Mohamud Farah Ali (Fure) is one of the oldest Islamic institutions in Wajir.
It currently has no modern facilities and despite the huge land it seats on, has limited capacity due to aging limited-capacity structures. It also has no prayer area for women due to its limited resources.
The mosque serves areas as far as sections of Got – Ade, Jogbaru, Manyalo, ADC, CoC and other neighboring areas.
Its upgrade will see the mosque get a two-storey building complete with modern ablution area, prayer area different for men and women as well as an ample parking area.
A grand fundraiser presided over by Wajir Governor Ahmed Abdullahi is scheduled to be held at Baraza park in Wajir town on October 15, 2016. Local leaders, business people as well as members of the general public.
Contribution in respect of Masjidul Wusda is ongoing and members of public are requested to pay their contribution through A/c No 1180971558, Kenya Commercial Bank – Wajir branch or through MPesa Till no 812 889.
