Affinity Intercultural Foundation takes great pleasure in extending an invitation to you and your spouse/ friend to join us for an Iftar – ‘breaking of the fast’ dinner – at the private residence of a Muslim family.
Affinity has been augmenting its significant contribution to social harmony through its Home Iftar Dinners initiative, which has now been running for several years. These Iftars, held during the month of Ramadan, are a great opportunity for individuals to engage in first-hand cultural exchange and consequent dialogue arising from the many commonalities. The feedback we have received from previous participants confirms that such engagement not only facilitates understanding of the Islamic faith and the Muslim culture but also enhances the Muslim community’s sense of belonging and consequently its contribution to Australian society.
We warmly invite you to be a part of this special community initiative. We have arranged several dates with Muslim families who are excited about the opportunity to host you in their homes. In the past Muslim families have hosted both federal and state politicians, public servants, media representatives, academics, think tank representatives, community and religious leaders.
Ramadan this year commences on 18 June and concludes on 16 July. The dates we have arranged to host you and your spouse/friend are found on the registration form page.
NOTE : Iftars held during a weeknight commences at 6:30pm and 5:00pm on weekends.
Upon completing the registration form, we will reply back to you advising which Muslim family will be hosting you, including their home address and other details.
We hope you will be able to partake in this event and celebrate diversity with us. We look forward to seeing you at one of these home iftar dinners.
