Say Hello to Husna!

Our ambassadors are constantly going above and beyond for us.

Husna is a part of Perth’s Indonesian community and has been a part of the HFB family for a year. She started out as a packing day volunteer but then took on the role of ambassador when Sr. Niniel (a former ambassador) moved interstate.

Every month she coordinates her community to collect, pick up and drop off donations – essentially running her own mini-HFB complete even with her own ambassadors.

To understand just how awesome Husna and the Indonesian community are, simply note down the fact that instead of raising the minimum of 5 food boxes in March…they collected 24 boxes worth of food!

Say Hello to Nariman!

1490715942590Our ambassadors are powerhouses.

Nariman joined as an ambassador in 2016. She is a part-time registered nurse and a full-time mother and wife.

“I wanted to give something back to the society and I wanted my kids and family to be involved in it. I believe it is very easy to donate money but dedicating your time and energy is something different.”

Nariman gathers a group of her close friends who pitch in to shop and sponsor over five full boxes of food every month. On top of that, she uses her role as an ambassador to educate her children.

“I wanted my kids to know the meaning of contributing to society and to help others in need. Not just by giving money but also by taking part in activities and volunteering.”

Say Hello to Jenna!

Our ambassadors are some of the strongest players in our project, spreading the word and championing this cause within their communities.1488120421057
Jenna is a mother of four and works part-time at Breastscreen WA. As well as being involved in her children’s school as a P&F member and Canteen Mum, Jenna uses her role as an ambassador to encourage kids and adults alike to get involved in the community.

“I thought it would be a good opportunity to encourage the kids at LIC to learn to help others and contribute to their community. Personally it is important to give back to those in need within our community. The Prophet (SWS) said, “You will not believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourself.” An-Nawaawi says that “brother” is in humanity, not just in faith.”

Jenna and her children are regular packing day volunteers and she collects her required boxes every month through Langford Islamic College.

Join the Team – Become a HFB Ambassador!

As a project we always have our sights set on the future – always considering what our organisation can become and how we’re going to get there.

This year we launched the HFB Ambassadors Program at our Afternoon Ladies Tea event.

A running theme in our meetings leading up to 2016 is that we saw no reason why we couldn’t pack more boxes. We set our target of 130 boxes per month and alhamdulillah we hit that target on the 27th of March 2016!

And this was largely due to our amazing ambassadors and their dedication.

Our Ambassador Program is open to any one in the community eager to make a positive contribution locally. The task is simple: provide 5 boxes of food per month and do it however you want. Throw together a sporting event or put on a BBQ; host a morning tea or hold a bake sale.

Our ambassadors are encouraged to think outside the box and entertain any or every crazy idea that will engage the greater community in the conversation about food security for all. We’re actually pretty excited to see what fun ideas people come up with! 🙂

Check out these videos for a snippet of what went down at our Ladies Tea, hear one of our ambassadors speak & find out more about how you can get involved!
