Islamic Relief Victoria held a family fun day event in late-February. The main objective was to raise awareness about our programs and projects and provide the community with an opportunity to bond under the Islamic Relief values and morals. It also aimed to raise awareness about the importance of community support and how it contributes to changing vulnerable people’s lives, here in Australia and overseas.
The event had something for everyone – young, old and in-between – from clothing stalls, perfume stalls to games and Henna art. Attendees also enjoyed the delicious food with food trucks offering a range of snacks, coffee and crêpes.
It was children who had the most fun – bouncing around in the jumping castle, taking part in a drawing competition, enjoying popcorn and fairy floss, and learning some new skills in a taekwondo session!
Islamic Relief Victoria hopes to host another community event once we overcome the current coronavirus crisis insha’Allah.
