Muslims Meals Project @ Old Bazaar Market

The Muslim Women’s Association of SA (MWASA) supported Multicultural Aged Care (MAC) in the launch of the Muslim (Seniors) Meals Project last week at the Old Bazaar Market, Hollywood Plaza.
 
MWASA – along with other community service providers such as Uniting Communities, ARAS (Aged Rights Advocacy Service) and Catalyst Foundation – had a stall at the expo to share information with the public on our respective services and activities.  
 
About 20 of our CHSP seniors participated in the event. After the launch, they visited the information booth and then were treated to lunch. The seniors thoroughly enjoyed the day as they were able to eat lunch and socialize with their peers in a relaxed and comfortable ambience. 
 

Seniors trip to the Old Bazaar Market

The most recent senior’s trip took them to the Old Bazaar Market, located in Salisbury Downs. 

The Old Bazaar Market was inspired by the worlds oldest shopping mall: The Grand Bazaar of Istanbul. At 2,000 square metres, the Market is one of the largest multicultural family function centres in Australia. There is entertainment for the whole family: a games arcade and indoor trampoline; however the Turkish tea was of more interest for our crowd.

Everyone was very keen for this trip and ready to board the bus on time. Upon arrival, our group of 15 explored all the shops (including the nearby Hollywood Plaza). Everyone then reconvened for a refreshing afternoon tea and to admire the beautiful decor of the Bazaar.

These regular activities are a wonderful opportunity for our seniors to get out and about in good company, and to chat and catch up with each other.
