‘There is a stereotype of women in hijab that they are refraining from doing anything for the neighborhood,’ Muslim Women’s Council of Victoria chairperson Afshan Mantoo informed SBS Urdu.
‘When somebody takes food, they state, ‘oh! a Muslim female is doing something’; it feels great.’
She stated those who take the food are from a range of individual backgrounds and religious beliefs – from white Australians to Indians and Sikhs.
‘Students, households, refugees and individuals from all strolls of life come and take the food we prepare,’ she stated.
The food is served in big packs that can last households for as long as 3 days – with personnel taking extra actions consisting of mask-wearing and routine temperature level checks to adhere to COVID-19 standards.
Ms Mantoo stated the group of volunteers themselves originated from various strolls of life, quiting time from their routine day tasks to assist those suffering the most from the results of lock down.
