The August 10 Foundation, established after the terrorist attack on the Al-Noor mosque, will receive NOK 1 million according to the government’s proposal for next year’s state budget, which will be presented on October 8.
“It means incredibly much. It shows that there is support out there for the purpose of the Foundation, and the work that we want to carry out in Bærum and Norway,” general manager of the Foundation, Hawa Abshir Muuse, told newspaper Budstikka.
The Foundation will help promote knowledge about the terrorist attack on the mosque on August 10 of last year, as well as prevent hate speech and hateful actions.
Melby: Worth supporting
“I visited the Al-Noor mosque and representatives from the Foundation before the summer.
I got to see the physical traces of the attack and to hear about what happened, why it happened, and why they are an actor who can convey the story further in a good and credible way,” Minister of Education and Integration Guri Melby (V) wrote in an email to Budstikka.
“I think the Foundation has a project that is worth supporting,” she said.
