The Lebanese Muslim Association’s Othman Bin Affan (OBA) Mosque at Cabramatta in Sydney’s southwest has a go-ahead committee that isn’t afraid to think outside the square when it comes to engaging with the local community.

Currently in the midst of its always busy Summer School Holiday Program, OBA Cabramatta Mosque also has a Community Engagement Barbeque pencilled in for later in the month which will be of great benefit not only to stakeholders but also members of the local community.

The event will be held on Wednesday 24 January at the Fairfield Youth and Community Centre from 10 AM to 2 PM and in addition to the barbeque, features of the day will include stalls and exhibitions, a cultural cuisine experience (where visitors will be able to sample foods from various cultures) and entertainments for the kids: jumping castle, novelty stalls, games, sporting competitions and more.

Cabramatta Mosque president Salim Allouche told AMUST, “The primary objective of this event is to foster collaboration and interaction among the  local community and with religious organisations.”

“It will provide a platform for participating organisations and businesses to showcase their initiatives and connect and engage with our vibrant and diverse local Fairfield/Cabramatta community.”

Situated at 55 Vine St Fairfield, the Fairfield Youth and Community Centre has been chosen as the venue for this event for its convenient location and excellent facilities.

OBA Cabramatta Mosque is excited to have AMUST on board as its media partner and also appreciates the support of AMUST’s publisher Seena Inc, IFEW (Islamic Foundation for Education & Welfare), MEFF (Multicultural Eid Festival & Fair), Fettayleh Smallgoods and MTC Fairfield, which provides Disability Support Services and English literacy training through the SEE (Skills for Education and Employment) Program.

All are welcome to attend what promises to be both a very informative and a very entertaining day on the 24th of this month.
