Gambia: Sanchaba Sulay Jobe Mosque Committee Appeals for Assistance

Members of the Council of Elders and people of Sanchaba Sulay Jobe in Kombo North District of West Coast Region (WCR), have launched an appeal to the general public to come to their aid in refurbishing their mosque.

"In the name of Allah, the beneficial and the merciful, we send you greetings from the Muslim Ummah in Sanchaba Sulay Jobe. In the name of the Council of Elders and the community, we seek support to maintenance and refurbishment of the town's mosque, which has seen a sizeable increase of worshippers over the last 20 years," the members stated.

The Council of Elders lamented that during the rains, praying at the mosque is a problem due to the dilapidated corrugated iron sheets and an old roof. "The Mosque Committee has done a quantity survey through the assistance of Cityscape Associates to determine the total cost of the materials for the general rehabilitation of the mosque excluding the provision of mats and carpets. Our intention is to refurbish the roof or to re-build the entire mosque," they told the Daily Observer.

Whilst anticipating kind consideration and response from the Samaritans, the elders of the village used the opportunity to pray for the Almighty Allah's guidance in the performance of Muslims' duty to Islam.
