Eid Al-Fitr celebration at CCR

The Ramadan month ended on 8th of August for the Muslim all over the world. With it, the Ramadan fast also came to its end. Eid Al-Fitr marks the conclusion of all the Muslims’ fast, thus being a very important holiday for them and for the Charity Centre for Refugees (CCR), which celebrates it each year. This year, on 12th of August, CCR organized an event in order to raise awareness about some Muslim customs related to Ramadan, Eid Al-Fitr and not only. In the opening part, the CCR director, Mr. Djavid Paknehad, the Programme Coordinator of UNHCR, Mr. Dinu Lipcanu, together with representatives of Ave Copiii NGO congratulated everyone with “Eid Mubarak” and wished all the Muslims and non-Muslims good health, joy and success. The UNHCR support is crucial in these events, where the humanitarian principles of neutrality, impartiality and humanity are directly applied in its work with all its persons of concern, no matter their religion, race, country of origin, or political convictions.
