KUWAIT CITY, Sept 1: Kuwait Food Bank is continuing to follow up the project to dig dozens of wells and build 100 mosques in India, Kuwait Food Bank Director-General Salem Al-Hamar stated on Saturday.
The project was launched by the bank this year to provide a decent life for the needy outside of Kuwait and a suitable environment for housing communities and religious duties, Al-Hamar said in a press statement.
Al-Hamar noted that the value of mosque construction in India is about KD 2,500 (about $8,257), and the wells’ cost starts from 50 KD (about $165).
Muslim people in remote Indian areas are in dire need for drilling fresh water wells, where they suffer the most to get a drop of water, he added.
He stressed that the bank will not hesitate to provide support and assistance to Muslims in many poor countries, pointing out that the bank has launched several charitable projects in various Arab and Islamic countries during the past months, which had a significant impact on charity and humanitarian work.
Al-Hamar called upon good people and benefactors in Kuwait to contribute to these ventures in order to activate the principle of social solidarity among Muslims in those poor countries, indicating that donation is through the bank’s website or headquarters in Al-Adailya area.
