Mega Raya Melbourne is one of the most anticipated events for Malaysians in Melbourne. The program is held annually to celebrate Eid ul-Fitr Festival, which is one of the major festivals celebrated by all Malaysians especially Muslims. Eid ul-Fitr marks the victory of Muslims against alleged desires during fasting in the holy month of Ramadhan and is celebrated by Muslims all over the world on the first day of Shawwal in the Islamic calendar. Last year, approximately 800 Malaysians of different races and social classes attended Mega Raya Melbourne 2016. The program is one of the major social programs held in Melbourne, which can create harmony among different ethnic groups and races of Malaysia by celebrating the festival together. For the Mega Raya Melbourne 2017, our team will continue in bringing the true meaning of the Eid ul-Fitr for everyone especially Malaysian students in Melbourne.
Continuing and keeping the tradition, we will be collaborating with Kelab UMNO Australia Melbourne, and are looking forward to co organize this event with, and the Malaysia Hall Resident Club (MHRC). These organizations are part of the actively student-run organizations in Melbourne, Victoria and were very passionate to serve Malaysians as much as we do. Besides, we will also be inviting some of the representatives from the international communities to provide them with an insight of how the Eid ul-Fitr was celebrated in Malaysia apart from widening our extension and relationship. Our collaboration will be a sign of strength and unity in organizing this glorious event, to unite all Malaysian and the representatives invited in a day, under the event- Mega Raya Melbourne 2017.
