The first week of January 2018, marked the foundation stone laying ceremony of WMO Ashiyaana in Akola, a housing project which will be home to 31 marginalised families of the Indian Memon Community. Akola is a city located in the state of Maharashtra in India, around 600 kms east of Mumbai.
WMO Ashiyaana marks the first of the Legacy Projects envisioned by WMO President, Mr. Solly Noor. “The goal isn’t to live forever, it is to create something that will, hence we continue our endeavours to build a habitat for humanity. We firmly believe that a simple, decent shelter is a basic human right and a primary need for all,” asserts the WMO President.
We are pleased to report that the housing project will be completed within the next few months. As the interior work on the apartments has commenced since the exterior structure stands completed; Ashiyaana is ready to welcome the 31 families into her fold.
We are indebted to Mr. Majid Ranani, Mr. Bilal Thekiya, the Akola Memon Jamaat and the Regional Management Committee of WMO North India Chapter who are the driving force behind the Ashiyaana project in Akola for completing the project in record time.
