Our donation to GV Hospice Care

Yesterday we celebrated the end of the Islamic month of Ramadan with morning prayers at our Mosque in Shepparton.

This gave us the perfect opportunity to present a donation of $3000 to local not-for-profit organisation GV Hospice Care. Hospice supports terminally ill patients and their families in a number of ways, including specialist medical, nursing and pastoral care, bereavement counselling and volunteer support.

Many Albanian families have utilised the free services provided by GV Hospice, so we felt it was a fitting choice when deciding which local charity to support.

Funds donated were raised as part of the two fruit packing days we held earlier in the year. Apples and pears were donated by local Albanian orchardists and were packed by an army of volunteers before being sent off for wholesale.

The balance of the funds raised from this project will go towards a major upgrade to the external grounds at the Shepparton mosque. More will be revealed very soon!
