“On behalf of the Muslim Women’s Association of SA, I thank Premier Marshall and Hon Jing Lee for their warmest Eid wishes to our organisation and our community.
Their thoughtful wishes are truly appreciated!
Despite the COVID-19 limitations, our community is following the guidelines and is celebrating Eid in all the various ways possible with family and friends.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Premier Marshall and his Government for keeping SA safe and well.”
Jing Lee’s Multicultural Community Event was a very well attended and successful celebration at the Norwood Town Hall, accompanied by delightful cultural performances.
Amid the big crowd of multicultural community representatives, the Hon Jing Lee was – as always – a warm and welcoming host!
When Premier Marshall took to the stage, he highly commended Jing Lee on her outstanding achievement as the Assistant Minister to the Premier and this was greeted with loud applause.
There were 10 Liberal MPs (Members of Parliament) present at this year’s annual occasion.
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.
