The Aziz Islamic Charitable Foundation in Britain, in cooperation with the authorities, supervised an initiative to hang Ramadan decorations in Piccadilly Square, one of London's largest squares, with the aim of spreading the joyful Ramadan atmosphere a few days before the holy month.
On Friday, the Aziz Foundation posted on its Twitter account photos of the decorations in Piccadilly Square and commented, "We are proud to sponsor the Beautiful Decorations and Lights of Ramadan initiative in Piccadilly Square, we hope that all friends and family visit the place to celebrate this solidarity initiative for all."
