My Life Story

My Life Story (1)

1979 Iran- Our town, we didn’t have organizations that helped the poor people to make houses, I and some friends talk about after we graduated start to help homeless people or people that struggling with their life.

So, we started helping people that don’t have homes, went to the village and work with them, asking our mom to make the food and give to them and many other things. We did almost 1 year as volunteers and our small town was very happy what we did. After a while, I moved to a different city in Iran and continue.

1996 Canada-I continued in Canada as well. I start doing volunteer in a food bank, working with homeless people and people dealing with Trauma in Vancouver East Side. I did till 2006 and it was one of the best journeys of my life I never forget. Their story is part of everyone’s life.

“There is a lot that happens around the world we cannot control. We cannot stop earthquakes, we cannot prevent droughts, and we cannot prevent all conflict, but when we know where the hungry, the homeless and the sick exist, then we can help”.
