Vancouver. Originally from Karachi, Pakistan, I’ve been living Vancouver for the past six years and have come to call it home. Social justice is very important to me and I believe that inadequate welfare rates are an infringement on human rights. Coming from Pakistan, it saddens me that such a developed country continues to marginalize its people. It is truly unacceptable how little is being done to alleviate poverty and to support those who need it most.
I hope that my participation in the Welfare Challenge helps highlight the need for this work and ultimately leads to a much overdue increase of social assistance rates in BC.
