CBS 2 Heroes - Immigrant Volunteer

Updated: Thursday, December 19 2013, 08:40 AM CST
Mahamadine Bachar came to the U.S three years ago.  Two years ago he found Cedar Rapids and St. Luke's Hospital.  Raised by his grandmother near Chad, Africa, Bachar says she taught him the importance of giving and taking care of others.  Today, Bachar volunteers every weekday at St. Luke's, works full-time and takes English lessons at  Kirkwood Community College.  He says it's his way of giving back to a city that's given him so much.  Mahamadine Bachar, CBS 2 Hero.
