The UAE’s Dar Al Ber Society, which was founded by the Ministry of Social Affairs as a charity, cultural, and social firm has opened a masjid in Uganda’s Imbiji area.

According to the UAE’s state-held news agency, Wam, the mosque has been opened as part of Dar Al Ber’s mandate to deliver humanitarian development initiatives and projects.

The opening of the mosque, which is located around 80km from Kampala, the capital of Uganda, was attended by senior executive of charitable projects at Dar Al Ber, Hassan Saleh Al Ali.

In February 2017, the Dar Al Ber society had collected up to $5.2m (AED19.4m) to build 156 mosques, locally and abroad.

Earlier this year, Sharjah’s largest mosque, the Sharjah Mosque, designed by ATI Consultants, Architects, and Engineers, alongside Hassa Architecture was inaugurated by HH Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah in May.

Saudi Arabia's General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowments (Awqaf) and the Association for the Care of Road Mosques inked an agreement to provide $8m (SAR30m) for the restoration, reconstruction, and development of 16 mosques on the road to Makkah and Madinah in October 2019.
