On Thursday, 9 May, 4th day of Ramadan 2019, Human Appeal Australia was privileged to bring together a diverse range of community representatives at an Iftar held at Campsie Police Station.
This is the only Iftar that is physically held in a Police station in the NSWPF organisation and Campsie Police Area Command has been hosting this event from the beginning. Over the years it has become an important event to come together for the community and Police.
We would like to sincerely thank Superintendent Kerrie Lewis and Assistant Commissioner Peter Thurtell, for the oppurtunity to break fast with the wonderful people who shape our community and continue to empower our youth, people such as our brother and local member for Lakemba Mr Jihad Dib, The member for Canterbury Ms Sophie Cotsis, representatives from Tony Burke’s Office MP, The Grand Mufti Dr Ibrahim Abu Mohammed, Department of Education, Islamic Organisations, Abu Hanifa Institute, Youth Organisations, GWS Giants, Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs, SES Canterbury Unit, and Campsie Police and it was great to see students who were past participants of The Wise Up program be involved in the set up and represent youth.
Human Appeal, is truly grateful for the oppurtunity to have spent an Iftar with friends, we look forward to being a part of so many other Iftars over the holy month of Ramadan this year across so many schools and other institutions.
