Nee Soon GRC has a long tradition of multi-cultural celebrations. This Ramadan, the volunteers giving out Ramadan porridge in Nee Soon Central included five non-Muslims.

One of the volunteers Lewis Yong told Berita Harian: “By donating a little time and energy to help distribute the porridge, I can understand what the Muslim community does during the month of Ramadan and also get to know them better.”

He even tried to fast himself, but couldn’t keep it up! This only deepened his admiration for the Muslim community.

Nee Soon Central MP Assoc. Prof. Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim, told Berita Harian that he was pleased to see non-Muslims come forward to help. He hoped that such activities will bring residents closer and deepen inter-racial and inter-religious understanding.
