As many as 10 new mosques will be built in Abu Dhabi's western region at an estimated cost of 20 million dirhams (around USD 5.5 million).

The Red Crescent Authority (RCA) and General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowments signed an agreement to build the mosques.

RCA board chairman Ahmed Humaid Al Mazrouei said the initiative will boost developmental and constructive efforts at a local level.

It was a bid to provide a decent life, comfort and basic services to the people of the region, he said.
