Celebrating Ramadan (Gergaoon)
Since we have been back in Bahrain we have been in planning an amazing series of events leading up to the finale of our first year as Ulafa'a. We hope you are as excited as we are!
The holy month of Ramadan has began where Muslims all around the world fast from dawn to sunset and use this month to focus on spirituality. Traditionally 'Gergaoon' (the 15th night of Ramadan) is celebrated in Bahrain by decorating the streets, and children collect candies from house to house, singing traditional songs.
This year Ulafa'a will participate in the celebration of Gergaoon by having a stall in the heart of Manama. We have a few activities set up, for children and adults, that celebrate good will, kindness, and a unified heart - just as Ramadan represents.
We are inviting the public to come visit our spot (map shall be posted up soon) this Tuesday the 23rd of July from 8.30pm and onwards to join in the festivities and spread the love. Wishing you all a Ramadan Kareem.
