Serrekundading Madrasah Construction
Serrekundading is a village located East of Brikama. Caravan of Mercy has been supporting the Serrekundading public through its Madrasah since it was established in 2008. Sadly this Madrasah has since collapsed.
The Madrasah once catered for 300 students from Serrekundading and surrounding villages.
During the annual rain and storm season in 2013, the region experienced such torrential rain falls and storms that utterly destroyed the Madrasah.
The Madrasah had two classrooms, one office and one store-room, it was a community project, financed by Caravan of Mercy, construction and labour was done by the locals with mud bricks. The roofing, doors and other materials were provided by Caravan of Mercy.
The ages of the children taught there ranged from 5 to 15 years. They were tutored by 4 teachers who taught them Quran and Islamic subjects as well as English language, mathematics, science and social and environmental studies.
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “The believer’s shade on the Day of Resurrection will be his charity” [Tirmidhi]
The locals are now desperate to have a new stronger building erected to fulfil their basic religious needs. A building that can withstand both the heat and heavy down-pours of rain.
Caravan of Mercy are therefore seeking donations in order to help the Gambians in Serrekundading.
