Mu’ooz means “tasty and healthy” in Tigrinya, the language of Eritrea and parts of neighbouring Ethiopia. Here in Brisbane, it is a not-for-profit social enterprise founded in 2003. Its mission is to provide a sanctuary, employment and training for women of African origin. Many of the women who work at Mu’ooz fled their homes after experiencing trauma and war, arriving in Brisbane with limited English and literacy skills. The opportunity to work with other women from similar backgrounds has helped to provide a supported start to life in Australia.
During the evening we will experience the sights, smells and taste of an Eritrean coffee ceremony and a three course meal with drinks. Saba Abraham, our host, will guide us through the menu, traditions and the backgrounds of the women we are supporting. This event will provide much needed support to another community group that helps individuals in need and contributes to the food and cultural diversity of Brisbane.
