(WICHITA, Kan.) — A Wichita mosque near Taft and Knight that burned down in November will soon be in service again.
“Everybody knew that they wanted to rebuild and that we do need a center on the west side for the people that use it. How that was going to get done, there were some logistics that needed to be worked out,” explains Donna Sibaai, Islamic Association member.
Investigators have never determined a cause in last fall’s fire, but gave the mosque persmission to start rebuilding last month. On Monday, supplies for the building’s roof were delivered.
Sibaai adds, “It’s like the first piece of the puzzle, so it’s going to be a great day for our community.”
