We broke our fast with friends and supporters at a special, private Ramadan Iftar, held at End2End offices in Fyshwick.
‘Iftar’ is the main meal eaten in Ramadan after sunset, where people in a community gather to break their fast and share a meal.
This year, the End2End team wanted to share the experience with our nearest and dearest business friends and supporters.
In true End2End Events style, we transformed the office into ‘Dawar El Omda’ which means The Home of The Head of a Community or Village in Egypt.
Guests were Welcomed to a lavish sit down dinner table and enjoyed a variety of Traditional Oriental Egyptian Cuisine catered by the Chef at The Egyptian Embassy in Canberra. Starting with a famous Egyptian Lentil soup, followed by some traditional mains.
After which Kareem owner and operator of AKA Travel in Canberra, shared an insight into Ramadan celebrations in Egypt and his top travel tips and places to visit when considering Egypt as a travel destination. And Zuraida organiser of Ramadan in The City, spoke about what it was like organising an Iftar on a large scale, and getting people of different cultures to embrace the opportunity to come together, meet new people and be part of a positive community event.
It was a wonderful evening and a great opportunity to thank our biggest supporters, while treating them to a feast and creating an occasion where they could briefly escape Canberra and be transported to rural Egypt, with authentic food matched with a country style Egyptian dinner table setting to celebrate Ramadan Iftar at ‘Dawar- el-Omda’ aka ‘End2End Events’
