Testimonials

When I first started with Zaman I was looking for some extra volunteer work, something I could put some extra time in to help the community. As I started to engage through some of the activities I realized Zaman was much more than I thought it would be. I recognized that Zaman was something powerful, something vital and influential. Zaman not only impacted the clients, it also impacted my inner self. Dealing with the clients through the mobile food drive came with many surprises. You get to see the outside world get a connection with the clients and get to know them better every day. One case was when I didn't show up to deliver on one of my regular delivery days the client noticed my absence, so the next time I delivered she checked up with me to see why I was gone. I had been gone due to my father's funeral. The client was startled by the news, showing her sorrow and asked my dad’s name in order to include him in her prayers. Another time, I delivered to a family this past Eid, and they greeted me gratefully, thinking that we wouldn't be delivering on Eid but instead celebrating with family. The thing that really touches me is seeing all the smiles on the seniors' faces and the excitement all the kids have when they are given food and gifts, knowing that there are people who care.

What drew me to Zaman was the idea of working for a respectable organization and I felt like I could donate my time to an organization that really puts forth the effort to help out the needy within the community.
