Ramadan Iftar

Muslims world-wide anticipate with happiness the celebration of Ramadan, a one month period of daily fasting and abstaining from food and drink from early dawn to sunset. The daily fast is broken (iftar) when the muezzin calls “Al Azan” from the mosque. This special moment is shared by all family members sitting about the table to eat, breaking the fast.r3

The EC arranges iftars at the Center in order that the team, students, and friends share the breaking of the fast together. This enables international interns and volunteers to learn through experience the customs of Ramadan more intimately.r1

The EC is keen to share this important religious tradition with its guests.r2
