Chat with Montreal’s Muslim Mother Teresa, Sister Sabariah Hussein

Meet Montreal’s Muslim Mother Teresa who feeds 500 people a day!

Join us on Sunday, June 20 at 8pm EDT for a lighthearted chat with this model Malaysian.

Known affectionately as the ‘Muslim Mother Teresa’ for the noble cause she has dedicated her life towards, Montreal’s Sister Sabariah Hussein, known by most as Sister Sabria, feeds up to 500 people a day. She cooks for a total of 400 to 500 homeless, needy or lonely people with the help of volunteers.

Born in Malaysia, she has devoted her life to helping others, placing their needs before hers. It’s a full-time job – and she doesn’t even get paid for it.

Sister Sabria’s involvement in the Montreal community dates back 30 years, when she arrived in Canada after completing international cuisine courses in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. She originally came to work as a specialized educator but found her true calling in volunteerism. As a devout Muslim, she is heavily involved with the Muslim community, cooking thousands of meals for mosques spread throughout the city. She lends a hand to anyone in need, regardless of race, religion or gender. In 2017, as her 70th birthday approached, she created the Sister Sabria Foundation aimed at implementing long-term solutions to eliminate hunger and support women in difficulty.
