Construction agreement was signed at a ceremony held in Kanoo Tower located in the Diplomatic Area of Manama
The Yusuf bin Ahmed Kanoo Group has inked a deal with developer Diyar Al Muharraq to build a new mosque and multi-purpose hall within the integrated Diyar Al Muharraq development.
The project is taking shape on Bahrain’s northern shores.
According to a statement from the group, 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.
“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,” explained Kanoo.
The mosque will carry Kanoo’s spouse’s name, Khulood Mohamed Abdulla Juma, while the multi-purpose hall will carry Kanoo’s full name, Fawzi Ahmed Ali Kanoo, the statement noted.
Construction work on the mosque and hall will begin within the next two months, Fawzi Kanoo said after signing the construction agreement with Diyar Al Muharraq CEO Engineer Ahmed Alammadi.
Alammadi remarked, “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.”
