Members of the Eritrean society gathered together this year to break their fast during Ramadan. This tradition has persisted for many years, continuing the community’s cooperation in social and national projects, and strengthening bonds between its members and their families in Eritrea and with the Eritrean diaspora.
The Eritrean Islamic Association organised its annual breakfast, which was attended by hundreds of people who collectively donated more than sixty thousand dollars. The center sends this money to Eritrean refugee camps through a charity in Sudan. The group has been active since the mid-nineties, and continues to participate in social, religious and educational areas.
Despite the challenges brought on by the pandemic, the community has come together, especially during Ramadan, to support one another and help those in need.
