For the first time, the Manitoba government Thursday will mark the beginning of Ramadan. Multiculturalism Minister Flor Marcelino will be celebrating with Manitoba Muslims their holy month of fasting in room 200 of the legislature from 5 to 7 p.m.
The public is invited to attend and bring a non-perishable food item to donate to Winnipeg Harvest. Ramadan is a time when Muslims share, and increase their empathy for the hungry through fasting, says the Islamic Social Services Association organizing the event. For information see www.give30.ca.
