ALBANIA IN FOCUS

ALBANIA

2011/2012 – Issue No. 16 Once again it gives us great pleasure to present our annual `In-Focus` magazine. Many brothers & sisters donated towards our projects during last Ramadhan and over the last 12 months, this magazine reflects upon the projects implemented and also provides readers with another opportunity to continue with their generous support.

Albania Situated in Eastern Europe and having the largest Muslim population in Europe after Turkey, Albania remains at the forefront of all our projects. A country that suffered from Communism for over 50 years, Albania now has over 500 Masjids and thousands of people are benefitting from our projects.

Bangladesh Many hundreds of thousands of families in Bangladesh do not have the means to have one decent meal a day. Access to clean water and a good education is beyond the reach of many. Your donations are helping us provide food, water & basic necessities to such families.

India India is home to a very large population of Muslims, unfortunately the majority of these live below the poverty line, with the prices of commodities at an all time high, the projects of the MWI are reaching out to help many in their hour of need.

Orphans Sponsorship Programme 350 orphans: £63,000

G G G G G G G G

This is one of our most important projects in Albania, the orphans attend Islamic Classes on a weekly basis, this has also had a huge impact on their families, many of whom have now become practicing Muslims. Due to the increase in living costs, our Albania sponsorship will be £25 monthly from this September, this comes to £300 per year, a humble request to all readers to sponsor an orphan in Albania.

Our first residential Madrasah in Belesh has completed another successful year, 10 students resided at the Madrasah and many students attended part time classes, a number of students have now completed the 2-year Islamic course and are serving their communities as Imams & teachers.

Islamic Awareness Programmes 40 Classes: £60,000

G G G G G G G G

One of the highlights of our Albania projects where 600 boys & girls attend classes on a regular basis, recently a visitor from the UK asked a 14 year old girl of how the class had benefitted her, she replied `this Islamic Class has changed my life, before attending I never used to pray namaz or keep a fast, now I have started to pray and also keep the fasts, it has revived Islam in me and my family.`

G G G G G G G G G G G G G G G G G G G G G

Albania Scholars Programme £15,000

G G G G G G G G

The success of our projects in Albania is down to the hard efforts of 3 scholars and their families of India who have now been residing in Albania for over 10 years, they look after all our projects and are at the forefront of preparing Imams & teachers to lead their communities.
