The S. Hithadhoo residents near the flats area did not have easy access to a mosque. This led to many difficulties. They could not hear the Maqrib prayer so was unsure if they could break their fasts. Attending the prayer in congregation also was difficult.
Therefore the Jamiyyathul Ulamaa and Noorul Islam NGO initiated a project to build a temporary mosque in the area. The mosque would cater to a population of around 3000 people.
We supported the project with a donation of MVR 5000.00
Maldivian Community Foundation
The Maldivian Community Foundation (MCF) is a non-governmental, non-profit organisation registered at the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Community Empowerment of the Maldives (reg. no. CR/158/2019), and registered as a tax exempt organisation at the Maldives Inland Revenue Authority. Its mission is to enable individuals, communities and partners to sustainably administer their charitable and philanthropic aspirations. It does this through the management of donated funds and disbursement of grants, scholarships and financial aid.
We aim to follow the well-established community foundation model, tweaking it to the Maldivian context, and thereby positioning ourselves as the premier fundraising and grant making organisation in the country. We plan to provide tools and instruments for the Maldivian community to partake in perpetual charity (sadagah jariyah) and philanthropy, and support the non-governmental sector by providing grants and technical assistance. We would also be working closely with the government and national development partners to strengthen the governance and accountability of the non-profit sector.
