Since 1998, our foundation has been organising annual iftar dinners.
Aim of these dinners is to gather and “break bread” with the NSW community members during the islamic month of ramadan.
In addition to community members, prominent public figures including federal and state ministers, diplomats, councillors, representatives from both government and non government organisations as well as the Australian media personnel have been attending our functions regularly.
Over the past decade, these iftars became very popular with more than 400 guests attending our functions annually.
