A Reception was held in June at Parliament House to mark the end of Ramadan.
The Reception was hosted by The Honourable Steven Marshall MP, Premier of South Australia, and The Honourable Jing Lee MLC, Assistant Minister to the Premier.
Chairperson Dora Abbas and Project Manager Shaista Kalaniya were invited to attend and represent the Muslim Women’s Association of SA.
The Reception was well attended by a diverse array of Muslim community members from different community organisations and places of worship.
MWASA appreciates the opportunity to share this joyous time of year with our friends in Parliament.
The Muslim Women’s Association of SA had the honour of being invited by The Honourable Steven Marshall, MP Premier of South Australia, and The Honourable Jing Lee, MLC Assistant Minister to the Premier, to the 2018 Multicultural Community Event.
This annual colourful event is a special gathering of diverse community groups coming together to celebrate multiculturalism in South Australia.
Attending from our organisation was Azidah Abdul Aziz – Vice Chairperson and Secretary, Shaista Kalaniya – Project Manager and June Hussain – Community Development Officer. Our team members, in chatting with The Premier, found him to be welcoming and friendly.
Everyone was invited to attend in their traditional cultural dress. The result was magnificent; the ballroom became a swirling kaleidoscope of colours, styles and textures.
We thank The Premier’s Office for this opportunity and look forward to next year.
