They call themselves the Shathi Sisters. Shathi is a Bangladeshi word that means togetherness.

That spirit is at the core of what drives the women to operate their multifaith soup kitchen out of the St. George’s Anglican Church in downtown Montreal.

Since December, the Shathi Sisters spend one Saturday a month cooking 100 meals for those in need.

“We think it’s our duty to do this,” said Irene Mazumder. “Not just because there’s people in need. It’s our duty. If we’re able to help, then why not.”

And they hope to expand their services in the future.

“The purpose of my engagement, it’s serving the community,” said Sobhan. “And maybe we started with a soup kitchen, maybe we can do more things. More projects.”
