Apart from allowing citizens to practice their Muslim faith, the center is a place for people to do good, promote unity, and lay the foundation of a community lifestyle, mosque officials said. The center will offer both religious and morality training for youths.
Farooq Wongborisuthi (3rd left), imam of Darul Ibada Mosque, accepts funds to help build the Youth Morality Center from Wittaya Kunplome (4th right), Chonburi PAO president.
The Chonburi PAO sponsored part of the construction of the center, contributing 150,000 baht of the 2.5 million expense, which was raised by the mosque.
“We believe in the importance of all religions, as they are the center of people’s beliefs,” Wittaya said. “I believe it was appropriate to push for the morality center to be used as a center for training youths on religion as an education.”
