Several businessmen donated over 2.6 mln rubles for Penza mosque construction
Penza, 5 November 2014. PenzaNews. Several businessmen who chose to remain anonymous have donated 2,610,000 rubles to the construction of a new mosque in Penza city.
As a representative of the charity fund of Tatar cultural heritage development “Siyanie” told PenzaNews agency, the same patrons had already made a donation before: back then, the received 3,200,000 rubles were used to pay for two domes of the mosque.
“The construction continues thanks to so many compassionate people in Penza city and region who are concerned with the issue of spiritual enlightenment. No doubt we would be able to complete the holy shrine faster if more well-to-do people were to leave donations with a kind soul. The city needs a mosque, not just as one more holy place for many Muslims, but, surely, as a cultural asset for the region,” the agency interlocutor said.
