U.S. Mission Uganda Celebrates Ramadan with Iftar

Ugandan Muslims enjoy Iftar dinner at the U.S. Ambassador’s residence.

On Monday, June 29, the U.S. Mission 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, U.S. Ambassador to Uganda Scott H. DeLisi noted:

“And so, ladies and gentlemen, what makes this evening so special for me, and for my colleagues, is the chance to celebrate the real friendships we have built with all of you over the last three years.  Despite the challenges of the world, this embassy’s relationship with Uganda’s Muslim community is stronger than it has ever been.  And even as we built these friendships, we also did some great work along the way.  Whether we were constructing centers to give Muslim youth life skills and job training, whether we were working with community leaders to facilitate interfaith dialogue, or whether we were simply working together to build a better future for all Ugandans, irrespective of their faith, I am deeply proud of what we have accomplished together — and hope that you are too.”

U.S. Mission Uganda extends its best wishes to Muslims around the world during Ramadan.  Ramadan Kareem!
