Hot Stew
‘Whoever saves one (life) - it is as if he had saved all of humanity’

The Noble Quraan

Surah (5): Al Ma'idah: Ayah 35

Shining A New Light In the Heart of Our Community

This winter, Adam found himself out of work due to circumstances beyond his control. With no savings to fall back on and a roof to keep over his daughter's head, things looked bleak.

While searching for work in the city, Adam's path led him to the Najam Institute's food drive on one of the coldest days this winter. Hesitant at first, he was welcomed with open arms and greeted by the savory aroma of the Plates of Peace hot meals giveaway.

With his hunger gnawing at him, he was served a hot, nutritious meal. This meal to Adam, was more than just food; it came as a form of hope in his darkest hour. A simple yet fulfilling meal warmed Adam's heart and eased a burden he'd been carrying for weeks.


He was moved by the compassion and unity he found at the food drive, by volunteers at the drive and it sparked a glimmer of hope in his tired eyes.


The Najam Institute's hot meals food drive did more than feed Adam; it nourished his spirit, renewed his faith, and ignited a determination to rise from his circumstances.

Adam's story is just one of many that illustrates the profound impact of your donation. Your support can nourish souls and mend lives.


Join us, donate today, and help us extend our reach to more people like Adam.
