On Tuesday, the Excellence Center held iftar with over 60 Palestinian students, international volunteers, and some local guests. Together we broke fast with a wonderful meal with salad, falafel, customary rice and chicken, finishing off the night with Arabic coffee and sweets.
The iftar also included a series of competitions as well as cash prizes from Falafel King and Al-Wataniya Mobile. We pitted our local students against our foreign guest in one-legged and carton balance races; balloon blowing competitions, and Arabic to English translations. All in all, it was a splendid time for all of our guest, Khalili and international.
