Hussam & Suhair Abu Issa Community Center Building

Com­plet­ed Projects

In Feb­ru­ary 2018 Mr. Hus­sam Abu Issa gen­er­ous­ly donat­ed to the Doha Munic­i­pal­i­ty to build a com­mu­ni­ty cen­ter to serve 15,000 res­i­dents. Due to iden­ti­fied lack of facil­i­ties sup­port­ing women empow­er­ment, the con­cept was trans­formed to serve women while tak­ing care of their chil­dren also.

Before the pan­dem­ic struck the project was almost 95% com­plete but the prices esca­lat­ed leav­ing the munic­i­pal­i­ty in dire need of fund­ing to com­plete the project.

In Octo­ber 2020, Mr. Abu Issa renewed his com­mit­ment to com­plete the project. By Novem­ber 11, 2020 the project was com­plet­ed. BDF and Doha Munic­i­pal­i­ty are work­ing hand in hand to estab­lish a well gov­erned cen­ter that will make a dif­fer­ence in the community.
