Appeal: ”Please go and get vaccinated”
Shaaban Abou Zur, imam in the Islamic congregation in Kristianstad, explains why:'
”We can give support and help”Shaaban Abou Zur, imam
– We in the Islamic congregation and the other congregations,Trefaldighet's congregation and the free churches , should be able to co-operate if it is for the good of the community. We can give support and help, he says.
In the middle of August the mosque at Näsby opened again for worshippers. 200 people came to the first Friday prayers. Shaaban Abou Zur asked afterwards if anyone had not been vaccinated.
– Only three young people raised their hand, but they were willing to go and be vaccinated.
The congregation has worked hard all year to distribute information about the pandemic. The health centre has paid us a visit.
Why do you think that fewer people get vaccinated at Näsby and Gamlegården ?
– We can't reach everyone living there, not everyone comes to the mosque. I hope we can rach them in some other way, through the municipality's network or other organisations in the area.
