Help rebuild our mosque
The Joplin mosque is the centerpiece of a thriving and well-rooted community in Joplin, Missouri. It is the only mosque within a 50-mile radius, and serves both the local Muslim community as well as the community at large. During last year's tornados, the Joplin mosque served as a headquarters for Muslim relief workers who flew in from around the country to see what they could do to help Joplin residents get back on their feet.
Unfortunately, in the middle of Ramadan a suspicious fire burned our mosque to the ground, and our community is left without a home during the most precious time of the year. While heartbroken, we are buoyed by the support of people around this country, of all faiths, who have come to our side in our time of need.
What you can do
You can help us realize our dream of replacing our mosque and moving forward with our lives by doing the following for us:
- Donate what you can - every little bit helps. We welcome your charitable contributions for this year and pledge to put them to good use in rebuilding.
- Give us your prayers.
An investment in the future
The best response to those who wish us ill is to draw from the best of our faith, and show the world that the power of good will forever outweigh those who wish to harm others. Thank you for joining us in this effort!
