SIGN UP NOW FOR THE UPCOMING ASPIRE CASE MANAGEMENT TRAINING

Don’t miss this opportunity and register now by emailing us at volunteer@muslimfoodbank.com.Moving to a new place can be an exciting time for a family but for Kamal, his wife, and two kids moving to Canada meant something entirely different. They were offered asylum in Canada, a country they knew very little about. With the hope of a better and safer life, they packed the bit of belongings they had and got on the plane that flew them across continents, all the way to Vancouver. The family learned first-hand the misery and despair of being a refugee. Not long after their arrival, the Muslim Food Bank & Community Services assigned caseworker Fatima to support Kamal and his family in their integration. As with a lot of new immigrants, the biggest challenge for this family was financial. The government supported Kamal’s family with a monthly stipend. Both of Kamal’s kids were placed in a school that was not walking distance from their rental apartment, and he was not able to afford the bus ticket. Fatima presented their case to the Muslim Food Bank program coordinator, Hiba, hoping she will be able to provide some support at least temporarily. Hiba came to the attention that after all the bills and expenses Kamal had only $200 left for food for the entire months. As a result, Hiba arranged for two weeks worth bus tickets for the family. On the other hand, Fatima was able to get a hold of a monetary donor for Kamal’s family with a $400 budget every month. Kamal was very grateful for receiving the support and used the cash to purchase food supplies for his family.

To Fatima, being able to volunteer for the Muslim Food Bank has been a truly rewarding experience. For starters, she feels that Hiba goes above and beyond in supporting her efforts to help her clients. “Working with this family made me a more grateful person,” Fatima asserts. Fatima is really glad she signed up to volunteer for the Muslim Food Bank and hasn’t looked back since.

Kamal has had quite a bit of progress in the first few months since he arrived in Canada. Last week, he was accepted into a role in an architecture firm with a three-month probation period.

“He has taken this up work so he can get some cash flowing and get Canadian experience,” Fatima states. Fatima feels that supporting this family as well as other people in need has been a great privilege of her life and she thanks the Muslim Food Bank for creating such a great platform.

These are real stories where our volunteers have an impact on members of our community helping them progress in their lives. InshaAllah next week we will bring you another story.
