Yathama Twin Towers - A Dream Project of "Makola Muslim Orphanage"

By the grace and blessings of Almighty Allah, the Orphanage commenced work on the project on 12/12/2014 and we are pleased to inform that the project has progressed upto the eighth floor of the proposed "Yathama Towers", which was an ambitious and a long expected Endowment (Waqf) Project of the Orphanage.

The Islamic Development Bank, Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is funding the first phase of the project with a Loan of US$ 10 Million.

On this occasion, a small ceremony was held by the Orphanage at the project site, which was presided by Mr.DAS Mohamed, the President, Board of Management, who started the project by praying 2 Rakath of "ISTHIKHARAH"'  in the presence of the Board Members, some Muslim personalities, Philanthropists, and the Architects/Engineers concerned.

Mr. DAS Mohamed delivered a brief speech, in which, he thanked Almighty Allah, for having chosen him to serve the Orphans of Sri Lanka. He said this Project "YATHAMA TWIN TOWERS" was a dream project of every one. Today it is the beginning of a dream becoming a reality. The project is expected to be completed in the next 2 years.

Mr. DAS Mohamed thanked all the Board Members of the Orphanage who were a source of strength for him to embark on this project.

He also conveyed his special thanks and gratitude to His Excellency Dr. Ahamed Mohamed Ali, President of the Islamic Bank, in Jeddah Saudi Arabia. And all the other respected brothers in the IDB who have done tremendous work, to obtain this loan facility as a first project in a none member country of the IDB.

This First phase of the Project contains a 13-storied building with 3 basements for car parks.

While the Orphanage is happy to convey this good news, it appeals to all  Philanthropists and Donors to lend a helping hand to launch the Second phase of this project, which covers an area of 3,740 square meters.  One square meter of this Project is estimated to cost U.S $1,600.00, which is equivalent to 460.00 Kuwait Dinars and 6,000.00 Saudi Riyals. If we could develop both phase 1 and 2 of the Project  simultaneously, we could save a substantial amount on the construction and the expenses according to the consultants, contractors and engineers.

Therefore we urgently need the capital to start phase 2 also together with phase 1.The total cost of the second stage is expected to be approximately US 7.5 Million Dollars.Inshah Allah we hope to raise this amount through local and foreign donors and well wishers.

Following are some of the photographs depicting the Progress of the project.
