A community Iftar hosted by MAX Solutions saw more than 150 locals, employees and friends gather to enjoy the ‘break of a fast’ together.
The evening aimed to foster a better understanding and appreciation of the diverse cultures within the community, with an opportunity for MAX employees to learn more about Ramadan and the Islamic faith over a shared meal in Logan.
Islamic Council of Queensland (ICQ) President Habib Jamal, Islamic Women’s Association Australia (IWAA) Chief Executive Officer Galilea Abdulsalam and Muslim Charitable Foundation (MCF) President Yusuf Khatree were in attendance, along with Multicultural Development Australia (MDA) staff and clients, MAX Solutions family and local Beenleigh residents.
MAX Solutions donated $3,000 to the Muslim Charitable Foundation to support their work providing relief and welfare for families and individuals in need.
Managing Director, Deborah Homewood, said the Iftar event was a great example of the organisation’s shared values of inclusion.
“MAX Solutions values diversity and difference and it is these very differences that makes the communities we operate in so great,” Ms Homewood said.
