Ramadan is all about patience, peace and most importantly brotherhood. The same sentiment is felt in Montreal where a woman is trying her best to ensure that no one in her community goes hungry regardless of their faith. Sabariah Hussein, 70 cooks for nearly 300 people a day on stoves present in her apartment. She is accompanied with a team of volunteers who assist in feeding the homeless, refugees and anyone who prefers a hot meal.
She cooks the massive deals for five days a week during Ramadan and rests for the remaining two days. The reason behind this generosity is that feeding others brings her happiness. Sabariah Hussein’s apartment is filled with aroma of delicious food and splendid spices. Stews, curries, and chicken patties are cooked every day for the people.
Source of Inspiration
She states that her source of inspiration of culinary devotion comes from her mother who would cook for up to 1,000 without charging them. Sabariah Hussein grew up in Malaysia but then moved to Canada three decades ago. She has since drawn a team of volunteers across Montreal to help her cook. Her acts of generosity reach out in other ways than just cooking for people. She also helps to run a woman’s shelter in Montreal.
Her charitable spirit also brought her the opportunity to meet Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Sabariah Hussein states that she is nowhere close to hand her apron as yet but hope that when the time comes, the next generation would be ready to carry out her legacy.
