Ramadan – Eritrean Community Breaking Fast in Melbourne, Australia

, , ,

Ramadan is a very special time. Ramadan is a time for giving and a time when all the community comes together.

Members of the Eritrean society gathered this year to break their fast together. This tradition has persisted for many years, confirming the cohesion and the continuation of cooperation in social and national projects existing between its members and their families in Eritrea to support members of the Eritrean diaspora.

The Eritrean Islamic Association organized its annual breakfast at the start of May 2021 in the presence of hundreds of attendees who responded to the (fasting breakfast) campaign, and donated more than sixty thousand dollars, which the centre sends to the Eritrean refugee camps in cooperation with a charitable organization in Sudan. This group has been active since the mid-nineties, and the association continues to be active in social, religious and educational fields for successive years without interruption. Despite all the challenges covid-19 has brought about, members of the Eritrean community came together and supported each other to overcome some of these challenges.
