The Amira Apartments Housing Project/Scheme was officially launched in Dar Es Salaam Imambargha on the auspicious occasion of the birthday of Hazrat Sayyedah Zainab (S.A.) daughter of Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib (A.S.) on 12th January 2019.  There has been a good response from our community members ever since and enquiries are flowing in regularly. This is a clear indication of the needs of housing in our community especially in Dar Es Salaam.

The AFED Housing Development Board is pleased to announce that a total of 178 application forms for the apartments were collected by our community members and 89 forms were received by Jamaat as of the deadline set 28th February 2019.

The Committee held two sessions so far for preliminary work, like seeking more information and clarifications etc. for members on 19th and 22nd February 2019, the session was held at Tabligh Auditorium where over 50 members (applicants) attended. Presently, the allocation committee is preparing to interview applicants while the sample apartment is being prepared. Pre-allocated eligible applicants will be given priority to view the sample apartment before the final allocation to the applicant.

Africa Federation and the AFED Housing Development Board would like to sincerely thank Alhaj Ahmedbhai Daya of U.K. for his continuous support towards the Amira Apartments housing project and also appreciate his efforts to visit Dar es Salaam for viewing the progress of the project.
