Donates water for Ramadan events

AUBURN Gallipoli Mosque (above) was one of 13 prayer centre across NSW to share in a donation of 35,000 bottles of water as part of Woolworths support for Ramadan.

A Woolworths spokesperson said the bottles of water were supplied to individuals during Ramadan, an initiative it started last year to support the Muslim community.
Woolworths Operations Manager Saleh Elkheir says Woolworths is dedicated to caring for local communities and the donations of bottled water is one way we’re supporting the Islamic community during this important time of year.
“Ramadan is the holiest month in the Islamic calendar and we understand it’s significant importance to the Muslim community,” he said. “With many people attending communal prayers in large numbers fasting all day, we have provided water so they remain hydrated whilst attending prayers that could go for hours at a time.”
