A few days before the end of Ramadan, the Philippine Consulate General in New York with the support of Kinding Sindaw MelayuHeritage Group held a simple Iftar (breaking of fast) event at the Philippine Center.

The first of its kind in New York and similar to Iftar activities held in other Philippine Foreign Service posts, the event provided an opportunity for Filipino Community members to learn more about the significance of Iftar and Ramadan.

The event featured a breaking of the fast (Iftar), Interfaith prayers, and a sharing session on the cultural and religious significance of Iftar.

The event was attended by members of the Filipino-Muslim community in the tri-state area, resource persons, community members from Mindanao, and other Filipino Community organizations.

The attendees expressed appreciation for this opportunity to learn more about the heritage and beliefs of the Filipino Muslim Community thus contributing to better understanding and inclusiveness.
