The Imam of Ahdulaye Village in Foni Wassadou Ebrima Boye, presided over the official opening of a new mosque in their village describing the edifice as God Sent.

The charity also fitted the mosque with a borehole, solar, mats, loud speakers, kettles, water tank and even the logistics for the inauguration.
The Imam thanked the charity for the gesture, saying: “It is God who will pay you in abundance.”
Mam Gorr Sour, who spoke on behalf of the elders of the village, took the opportunity to advise people of Ahdulaye, to remain united and work towards the development of their community.
