On May 20, the GIANTS opened their doors to more than 200 guests, including NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, for the club’s annual Iftar dinner at the Learning Life Centre. The annual Iftar dinner aims to bring the Western Sydney community together to embrace cultural diversity and celebrate the breaking of the fast during Ramadan.
Richmond Tigers player, Australia Post AFL Multicultural Ambassador and practicing Muslim Bachar Houli opened proceedings with a call to prayer. He said, “It’s great to see clubs such as the GIANTS be so welcoming to the Islamic community. We live in such a great country, such a diverse country that we need to make an effort and the GIANTS are leading in this area.
“In Western Sydney you see a lot of diverse backgrounds and we see it today, people from all backgrounds coming in and sharing different foods and it’s beautiful because food bring people together.”
