The Kakangaga Secondary School, located in the Kakangaga village that is populated by Muslims and is 4 kilometers away from Tanzania’s Kibondo city, was built by Muslim foundations and communities many years ago.
As a result of the fire that broke out last May in the girl’s hostel belonging to this secondary school, the building was totally destroyed.
As the students were performing isha (night) prayers in the masjid when the fire began, fortunately there were no deaths or injuries, however, everything in the hostel including the student’s books, clothing, personal belongings, and also the mattresses, bunkbeds and doors were burnt in the fire.
IHH teams took action
Following a request for help from the region, IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation teams took action and launched a renovation project for the building. With this project, the renovation of the building destroyed in the fire was completed, and we also provided financial and moral support to the people in the region.
Our new project needs support
The restored hostel building is still incomplete. IHH needs the support of donors to meet the needs of basic items including mattresses, bunkbeds, sheets, and blankets.
