MARWA Islamic Centre Melbourne Fundraising Dinner

MARWA Islamic Center Dinner

Saturday, September 1, 2018 from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM (AEST),UMMA Centre, 72 George Street, Doncaster East, VIC 3109, Australia

Muslim Association of Riverina and Wagga Wagga (MARWA) has been serving the Wagga Wagga and Riverina community since 2009.

The existing Islamic Study Centre at the Charles Sturt University (CSU), Wagga Wagga campus, comprising of only two rooms, has been catering for the spiritual and social needs of Muslims of Riverina for the last twenty one (21) years.

However, in recent years the facility has now become severely inadequate for the growing number and needs of Muslims adults, youth and children, due to the significant increase in the Muslim population in the city of Wagga Wagga.

To address the issue, MARWA, with the generous assistance of Muslims in Wagga Wagga, have been raising funds for the last nine (9) years and has now purchased land valued at $229,000 for building the region’s first Islamic Community Centre.

It is for this reason that MARWA has organised a fundraising dinner at the Umma Centre Hall, Doncaster on Saturday, 1st September, 2018, and seeks help from Muslim brothers and sisters, organisations and businesses to make this event a success.

The proposed Islamic Centre will comprise the following:


  • Congregational prayer hall.
  • Islamic Library.
  • Islamic School for children with at least 5 classrooms and audio visual facilities.
  • Reception area, lecture hall (with audio visual facilities) with stage and adjacent commercial kitchen and dining area.
  • Office for Imam and lecturing staff.

 Recreational & Social

  • Dedicated area (separate for men and women) encompassing exercise machines, board games, such as billiard, pool, table tennis, darts etc.
  • Common Café counter and separate men and women relaxation area.
  • Children play area.
  • Car park for 100 cars to accommodate the number of the Muslim student and families attending the Islamic Community Centre.
