In a humanitarian gesture, The Sharjah Welfare Association plans to reconstruct an entire village costing over Dh3 million for the tsunami victims of Kenya village in Sri Lanka.

Announcing this yesterday, Sultan bin Butti Al Muhiari and Mohammed Hamdan Al Zari, Members of the Board of Directors of the Association, urged the community to support them in raising funds required for constructing the village and equipping it with major facilities.

Al Zari said the Association had completed all formalities and preparations for constructing the village immediately after Association officials visited Sri Lanka. "We have also arrived at an agreement with the Government of Sri Lanka and the UAE Embassy to facilitate start of work within a few days to construct 100 residential houses in addition to a mosque, hospital, school and other essential facilities.

The village is expected to be ready with all the facilities within six months,” he said, adding that the Association had chalked out a detailed plan to establish necessary infrastructure in the village located just five Km away from the coast.

Al Muhairi hoped that the people will donate and lend a helping hand for the people living in the affected areas. "In order to raise funds for the project, we are launching a campaign titled "Contribute Even One Dirham” where people can donate through various locations receiving donations for the Association.

The collection of even one Dirham from each donor can work wonders for the people living in such devastated areas, he said, and praised the significant role played by the Government of Sri Lanka in executing the project which is considered as one of a pioneering projects. Al Muhairi also appreciated the efforts of Mahmoud Mohammed Al Mahmoud, Ambassador of UAE in Sri Lanka, who spared no efforts in ensuring the implementation of the project. (The Khaleej Times)
