Great organization. Very professional. Used them for years now. Will continue to use them for charity. May they be rewarded for all the work they are doing and all the people they are helping.

Improve the emails. There seems to be a technical proble with the email messages. It gets to me partly cut and cann't read the whole message.

I volunteered for Islamic Relief (IR) in Alabama for a week in 2011 for the tornado devastation. It was such a unique and eye opening experience, and I thank IR for the opportunity to help. Not to mention how accommodating they were to their volunteers, and how much they appreciated all of our effort..! Also, since we worked for the American Red Cross, they were also extremely appreciative of all of our help, and it was extremely lovely and inspirational to be working alongside such dedicated individuals.

Every time there is a disaster somewhere I see Islamic Relief in the front lines trying to get aid for those who need it. When in my locality a flood came and many houses where damaged Islamic Relief was one of the only organization that I was contacted by to help out.They did a phenomenal job helping people in NJ with the 2011 flood.

Review from Guidestar

I have worked on and off volunteering for Islamic Relief for the past decade and have continually been impressed with what I have seen and who I have worked with. They consistently demonstrate a level of professionalism and plurality genuine of an aid organization with the accessibly and openness found in grass root organizations. I have been happy with the diverse projects and efforts to bring attention to many unfortunate situations that often go forgotten. Most impressive is their low overhead cost associated with their operations, maximizing the amount donated for relief.

I've been volunteering for Islamic Relief ever since I was 13, and I can honestly say it has only become more and more rewarding for me throughout the years. IR exceeds the censorship of the media and shows citizens the reality of the tragedies around the world. More importantly, the humble nonprofit organization informs communities of how they can help these causes through their charity work. The hands-on help they deliver through food distribution and orphan sponsorship is remarkable. Islamic Relief gives us the opportunity to be generous in aiding the victims of disasters through donation and sponsorship. They are organized, professional, and outstanding in their work. While volunteering for IR, I worked directly under Nazia Hossain of Volunteer Management and had only the best experience. She is exceptional in her dedication to the causes Islamic Relief supports. It is a blessing to volunteer for this charity organization, and I truly appreciate it.

There are no changes I would make to this organization; I simply hope that IR will keep growing and improving in its efforts to benefit the world.

It's my first day voluntereing for IR USA and my first week in the united states. I am from Ethiopia and have moved to the United states only five days before, today has given me a sparkling glimpse of what proffesional life can be in the USA. I am helping in the front desk area, where every one passes by showing of a beautiful and confident smile, which shows their satisfaction in their jobs and respect to each other. One of the reasons that drew my interest to volunteer to IR was my interest in developing a carrer that will not only earn me a living but one that will build my ethical and moral values. So far, Islamic Releif has assured me the possibility and realisticness of my dream work enviroment.

I first started volunteering for Islamic Relief two years ago. I remember how excited I was for the chance at volunteering for such a good cause. I have spent countless hours volunteering at the IR USA office and at their special events and I am proud to say that I am a better person because of it. Volunteering for IR USA has not only provided me with the necessary skills I need for working in the real world, but it has also opened my eyes to all the hardships and sufferings going on around the world and realizing that not everyone is as privileged as I am. Knowing that because of my effort, whether it was simply entering data into a computer or ushering people to their seats at a fundraising dinner, somewhere in the world, I helped to put a smile on a person's face. And to me that is what really matters. Islamic Relief operates not as a business, but as a caring family, reaching out to those in need, not holding back on help because of a person's religion, background or culture. In the eyes of IRUSA, a person in need is a person in need, no matter who they are. I am so blessed to have been able to volunteer with such a wonderful organization and better yet, to have become part of the IRUSA family.

The Great!
