It started when we were on the way to the South of Thailand, and while on the way we had to stop at various different mosques in order to offer our prayer. However, while we did find mosques to pray at, we realized that mosques were scarce on the way to the South. In addition, the mosques we found and offered our prayers in were not in ideal condition and could use funding for renovation.
When we started doing our research in this, we realized that although there are places with a Muslim community and Muslim tourism, there were not enough mosques. A good example is the island Koh Chang. It’s a beautiful island situated in the South of Thailand with a muslim community. However, there is no mosque on the whole island. Koh Chang consists of beautiful churches and temples, however no mosque as to date.
So we believe Koh Chang is the place to start. By building a mosque on the island, we help the Muslim community and give them a new facility to offer their prayer in.
