This year’s Christmas Event theme is ‘Peace and Unity,’ which serves as an uplifting reminder that amidst our diverse faiths and ethnicities, there exists a common human thread that unites us all. In the true spirit of Christmas, a holiday that transcends boundaries, we endeavour to create a space where everyone feels heard, valued, and part of a broader, harmonious community.” During our event, guests had the opportunity to engage in enriching conversations with a diverse group of individuals, each bringing their unique perspectives on how we can achieve peace and unity in our communities. Through dialogue, we aim to dismantle prejudices, foster friendships, and work collaboratively to envision a more unified future for all.
