OUR BUKIT PANJANG IFTAR 2015
Alhamdulillah, another successful Iftar in the North-West by our Bukit Panjang
team. Our Bukit
Panjang Iftar was held at the Hardcourt located near Block 214, Petir Road on Sunday, 28th
This year was the first year we joined hands with JUST PARENTING, WAHA and ADAM. It was a
wonderful experience working with them. This event was supported by the Bukit Panjang
Assoc Prof Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim (Parliamentary Secretary, Ministry of Health & Ministry
of Transport) graced the occasion. He highlighted that there should be more of events like this
to strengthen the bond amongst fellow Singaporeans.
Upon the arrival of the GOH, we had Nasheed performances and Qirath Recitation by the little
ones as well as a welcome speech by IMSSA and JUST PARENTING organization. To celebrate
SG50 through our Iftar our volunteers were all dressed in the theme of red, and there was a
commencement of the National Anthem and Pledge to show our devoted love and patriotism
for our country.
In line with IMSSA’s motto, “Gather, Learn and Serve”, this Iftar served as a great platform to
gather friends, family and neighbours to break fast together regardless of race and religion.
Warmly welcoming every attendee and being hospitable towards them is what we’ve been
putting to practice. Indeed, this is the objective of our Iftar.
We had an overwhelming turnout of 1500 participants. Also, 150 needy families received NTUC
vouchers, goodie bags and rations keeping in mind the spirit of giving especially in the holy
month of Ramadan.
The Iftar menu for the day was Kothu Prata, Blueberry Cheese Tart, Cucur, Dates, Kueh, Masala
Chickpeas, Fruit Punch, Watermelon and Mineral Water. As for the Sahur food, we had Cumin
Rice, Chicken Sambal and Dhalcha. Both the Iftar and Sahur food were cooked, prepared,
packed and served by our very own IMSSA volunteers. Children were given goodie bags and
Kids’ Meal to break fast.
We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to the organizing team,
supporters, sponsors, volunteers and attendees for joining us and making this Iftar a success. In
Shaa’ Allah, may the Iftars in the coming years be successful too. Aameen!
