U.S. Mission Uganda Celebrates Ramadan with an Iftar Dinner
U.S. Mission hosts Iftar dinner
U.S. Mission Uganda
On August 16, 2012, the U.S. Mission to Uganda hosted more than 70 Muslim leaders for an Iftar dinner at the U.S. Ambassador’s residence to celebrate the holy month of Ramadan.
Speaking at the dinner, Chargé d’Affaires John Mark Winfield noted that “More than five million Muslims--attending one of over 1,200 mosques--in the United States join you in reflecting upon the wisdom and guidance that comes with faith, upon the responsibility human beings have to one another and to God, and upon values of selflessness, charity, and compassion. These values, which unite Muslims and non-Muslims alike, remind us of our common pursuit of justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.”
The U.S. Government is committed to engaging Muslims in Uganda on the basis of mutual interest and respect.
