Winnipeg Muslim group ships needed food to First Nations

Winnipeg Free Press – November 12, 2012


Needy families in two remote First Nations communities in Manitoba will be dining on steaks and chops thanks to observant Muslims in Winnipeg sharing their feast. The charitable foundation is shipping beef, lamb, goat and chicken to Shamattawa and Garden Hill, as well as potatoes, bread, carrots, milk, tea and sugar. Guisti rounded up the donations from members of Winnipeg’s Muslim community to mark Eid al-Adha, the feast of sacrifice, to show gratitude to God and to provide for the poor and needy.


This is the fourth year the foundation is delivering food to the needy up north. The groceries will be distributed to 200 of the most needy families.
