CELEBRATION IS AROUND THE CORNER PASSION, INTEGRITY & APNAPAN

Dear All,
The countdown to Eid has started so start getting ready for festivities with heaps of events
happening around Australia.

Last year when I decided to step down there were plenty of comments that it would be difficult
to manage and where will I get the volunteers to work but one year on there is enough support
and one of the best examples is the Eidul Fitr event led by Asma which is now fully booked and
for the first time I have kept myself completely in the background.

For all those who have missed out please book 13 th August in your diary as we will have our next
event to celebrate Pakistani Independence Day. Venue yet to be ocnfirmed.

We have also been able to get our first Research Brief for 2017 available and hope to distribute it
through Multicultural Mental Health Forum in the first week of July. The same will be available
on our website next week.

Our AGM is also planned for 27th June, 2017 and as always we will make the annual report
available on the web at the same time as it is presented. There are no elections this year
because of the two years term.

An invitation has been received to attend the Iftar at Australian ArabChamber of Commerce and
Industry this week.

A VERY HAPPY EID TO YOU ALL.
