"Faith in Action for Common Cause"
Participant United Nations SG’s Zero Hunger Challenge
A community activist, Zamir Hassan founded a grass root movement to engage Muslim community in social action called “Muslims Against Hunger Project”. The program evolved into “FAITHS AGAINST HUNGER”. the movement is a North American network of volunteer communities to help the hungry and homeless in our backyard. The Network’s underlying mission is to provide the means and the path to self-sufficiency to “Break the Bonds of Poverty”. and provide opportunities and support essentials to reducing, and hopefully, eliminating reliance on public and private assistance.
In 2011 Zamir started a mobile soup kitchen program known as HUNGER VAN which brings food and other basic needed items to the homeless and needy in the street. Volunteers gathers in the places of their choice like homes, faith institutions, schools, community centers, parks etc. and prepare meals and deliver with the HUNGER VAN to the needy in the streets. This project is creating active practitioners of "UNITY of FAITHS by SERVICE", to provide human services using volunteers across religious, political, and socioeconomic lines. doing this, we fosters understanding and tolerance through SELFLESS SERVICE.
