Bahrain-based Yusuf bin Ahmed Kanoo Group has signed a agreement with leading developer Diyar Al Muharraq to build a new mosque and multi-purpose hall within its modern integrated development coming up on the kingdom's northern shores.
Yusuf bin Ahmed Kanoo Group Deputy Chairman and Bahrain Philanthropic Society Chairman Fawzi Ahmed Kanoo will be sponsoring the construction of a mosque and a multipurpose hall as part of his ongoing commitment to philanthropic projects, said a statement from Yusuf bin Ahmed Kanoo Group.
The mosque will carry Kanoo’s spouse name, Khulood Mohamed Abdulla Juma, while the multi-purpose hall will carry the sponsor’s full name, Fawzi Ahmed Ali Kanoo, it added.
The work on the mosque and the hall will begin within the next two months, said Fawzi Kanoo after signing the construction agreement with Diyar Al Muharraq CEO Engineer Ahmed Alammadi at a ceremony held in Kanoo Tower located in the Diplomatic Area, Manama.
On his new philanthropic initiative, Kanoo said: "I come from a family that takes philanthropy seriously. My father, the late Ahmed Kanoo, as well as my grandfathers, have all been at the forefront of philanthropy in Bahrain and the region, and through them I’ve learnt the necessity and importance of giving back to society."
Lauding Kanoo's generous and benevolent initiative, Alammadi said: "The good work carried out by the Kanoo Family has been ongoing over the years and has reflected positively on various communities in the Kingdom, as well as other parts of the GCC."
“Building the mosque and multipurpose hall comes in line with our vision of creating close-knit communities, adding significant value to Diyar Al Muharraq, one of the largest and most visionary modern urban developments in the Kingdom of Bahrain," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
