Happy Eid with Auburn Children’s Family Centre

Eid Mubarak! Eid occurs at the end of Ramadan, where our Muslim brothers and sisters celebrate by having a special feast and praying together with their family and community.

At Auburn Children’s Family Centre, quite a few of our staff had entered a month of fasting and extra praying, which to them Ramadan means strengthening their relationship with God and showing kindness and patience. To some of us who don’t follow the Islam religion, we simply share the significance of the month by attending the Ramadan Night Market. It’s noteworthy to mention the Ramanda Market at Lakemba is something all of us should attend. It is a massive event hosted by the Canterbury Bankstown Council. You can try all different kinds of cultural food there. For the very first time, I had a camel burger, which surprisingly was very delicious! Few of our Auburn staff have visited the market to join the festivities. We also bumped in a few head office staff at the market as well.

So to all our Muslim colleagues and clients, Eid Mubarak to you and your family.
