SIDNEY CENTER – Spiritual leaders, mayors, law-enforcement officers, friends and neighbors gathered Sunday evening at the Sufi Muslim community of Osmanli Dergahi here to express solidarity after the mass shooting in Christ Church, New Zealand.

“You coming here shows you care.” said Junaid Khan, a leader of the community. “Facebook, twitter, they don’t matter. Thank you for taking action and coming here. It means a lot to us.”

A gunman entered Al Noor Mosque in Christchurch during Friday Prayer on March 15 and shot almost 100 worshipers, killing 50, in the worst mass shooting in that nation’s history.

It was a packed house at the Unitarian Universalist Church this evening as people gathered to enjoy Kenyan cuisine to support their The Mali Education Project, which has been supporting children in Youchaou’s Private School outside of Mali since 2006. Above, Anna Hankins, Maurince Odago, Duncan Omune, Charles Hudson and Tracy Vurma fill their plates with mbata, ugali, kachumbari, githeri and more, all made by members of the church. Through their involvement with the UUSO, the school has been able to build a second and third floor and expand their programming through high school. Anyone interested in providing support for the project can contact the UU Church at (607) 433-1272. (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)
