Hatam Al Ameri

105 Gibson Centre’s Food Bank is not the first food bank that Hatem visited after arriving in Canada in 2017. However, the Centre’s friendly environment and staff had given him a sense of belonging. To him, the Centre is different from other places because he feels the people here love to help and welcome him every time. This made him want to come back – and he has!

Now, Hatem volunteers at the Centre and is often seen setting up classrooms, lifting heavy items or chatting with people and making new friends everyday. He loves to help and not says no to anything. Why? In his words, “Because 105 Gibson Centre is my favourite place.”
