The holy month of Ramadan is here! This is a very special time of the year for Muslims. We fast to be closer to Allah and to share the hardships of those who are poor and do not have enough food to eat.
Share our traditions during this month and experience the magic of Ramadan with our families in Aida and al-Azzeh refugee camps!
Come, alone or with friends, to have iftar* with us and discover all the different foods and delicious flavours with which we break our fast. You’re going to love this experience!
