Islamic Humanitarian Service
Our full-time drop-in centre was officially inaugurated in October of 2001 in the presence of hundreds of friends and supporters from the Muslim community, local community leaders and government officials from the local, provincial and federal levels.
In addition to being the head-quarters for the Islamic Humanitarian Service and its administrative offices, the centre boasts two large halls for religious and cultural functions which can accommodate over 300 men and women. Our IT department has equipped the entire building with a high-speed wired and wireless InterNet connection with a centrally located and networked laser printer. In addition, we offer community members satellite TV from the USA and the Middle East in English, Arabic, Farsi, and Turkish with other languages coming soon!
Youth who want to come and study in an Islamic atmosphere can make use of the library and other areas of the building and tap into resources on the InterNet with one of three computers which they can use for research and other purposes. Our relaxation section provides a ping-pong table and a Sony Playstation 2® with a wide selection of games—permitting our youth to meet, interact and play with one another in a controlled and friendly environment away from the outside temptations.
