Saudi Student Clubs in Australia have organized Ramadan breakfast (Iftar) programs this year, as part of the main activities organized by the clubs during the holy month of Ramadan every year. The aim of these programs is to enhance the one-family concept between the students and their companions, and to alleviate study pressure and students’ suffering while being away from their homeland. Such activities also help strengthen students’ national and cultural belonging.
A number of Club presidents have confirmed that Iftar programs enhance the spirit of brotherhood and affection between students, and provide a venue for them to meet and discuss any issues they encounter.
On the same level, the Saudi Arabian Cultural Mission (SACM) in Australia has organized an Iftar ceremony for its staff at SACM’s premises in Canberra, attended by a group of staff members and their families.
