All those interested in participating in these events are requested to kindly inform me at least 3 days in advance of each event by email or SMS.
Anyone who would like to prepare iftar or contribute to the cost of the meals is requested to kindly contact me before the beginning of the month of Ramadhan
You may be aware that our center remained open during the Covid-19 pandémie period and we continued our religious, inter-religious, cultural, political, social activities as well as our support to immigrants, services (mariage, …) and our school despite the circumstances. Since one year we have offered a meal every Thursday evening to all attendees (immigrants and others) and we recite Fatiha for the deceased. During this difficult period several people were able to organise commemorations for the dear ones that they lost, while respecting health guidelines. Our center was a place of comfort for the bereaved brothers and sisters.
I would like to thank all those who support us regularly and fulfil their commitments. Without your contributions our center wouldn’t be able to exist. Despite a reduction in attendance due to the pandemic and therefore a reduction in contributions, we witnessed, thanks to God, a great unity within our community.
Thanks to your generosity, we were able to come out of the financial crisis that we encountered in 2020. Some brothers and sisters have not yet paid the amounts they had promised in 2021. In order to prevent us from facing financial problems in 2022, I would kindly like to request them to fulfil their commitments.
We continue to count on your donations in order to maintain our activities while remaining independent. As you may know, the association has no paid employees and all our activities are carried out by volunteers. Therefore, your contributions will be used mainly to pay the rent.
Brothers and sisters wishing to contribute to Iftar, the rent of our center or to help us with our activities during the holy month of Ramadhan or those that take place throughout the year may send their payments to the following account:
CCP 12 –570768-0 (IBAN : CH11 0900 0000 1257 0768 0).
We also always need your advice and support in all areas, be it intellectual, physical, digital, educational etc.. and most of all your presence, in order to achieve our goals.
For any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me on 079 680 46 26 /078 653 86 82 or by email:
May God accept our fasts and reward you for your generosity.
