Dubai: Eight endowment centres in the Republic of Kosovo, to supervise the building of mosques across the country, were ordered by Shaikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and Minister of Finance and the chairman of Al Maktoum Charity Foundation.

Mohammad Obaid Al Gannam, Secretary-General of the Foundation, said that Shaikh Hamdan’s directives came after receiving Shaikh Naeem Ternava, the mufti of Kosovo, during his recent visit to the UAE and the visit made by a delegation from the foundation to Kosovo.

The cost of these endowment centres to be set up in Kosovo will be $1.5 million (Dh5.51 million) and are almost ready to start their activities under the patronage of Shaikh Hamdan.
