On July 10, 2014, the U.S. Mission in Uganda hosted an Iftar at the U.S. Ambassador’s residence. The dinner was held to share in the breaking of the fast with members of Uganda’s Muslim community and to honor the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
Speaking at the dinner, Chargé d’Affaires Patricia Mahoney noted:
The U.S. Mission in Uganda remains committed to our strong partnership with Uganda’s religious communities, anchored in our common belief in the dignity of every human being. We advocate for the expansion of interfaith cooperation and dialogue to improve he lives of your fellow Ugandans, regardless of their religious identity. We support your efforts to foster greater understanding of our differences, even as we recognize and celebrate the values we share. In this time of prayer and reflection, we hope your prayers will be answered, that your families and communities will be strengthened, and that Ramadan brings you, your families and your communities peace, happiness, and every blessing. May our two nations, working together with faith and determination, share these truths with all humankind. May God’s peace be upon you.
U.S. Mission Uganda extends its best wishes to Muslims around the world during Ramadan. Ramadan Kareem!
