ICNA Relief made it possible for my goal of assisting Syrian refugee families a reality. Through their interfaith tutoring opportunities, my husband and I are working with middle and high school students who are new English speakers and just learning to navigate the American school system. I get to bring my years of experience as an English teacher and ELL Coordinator to help these families. ICNA relief also made it possible for two coworkers of mine to tutor; for my friend who is throwing a birthday party for her daughter to use ICNA Relief's registry to gift to Syrian children; for my friend who runs a NYC Tour agency to launch a project wherein she will acclimate Syrian families to NYC. In short, ICNA Relief builds bridges! I would like to especially thank Umber Siddiqi and Leila Elfane for their tireless efforts on behalf of refugee families. They are angels!

ICNA Relief is a trustworthy and impactful organization serving the most vulnerable of families right here in the USA. It has its heart in the right place whether serving homeless women and children through its transitional homes, feeding the hungry through its pantries or supporting communities destroyed by natural disasters. I am honored to have donated to them each and every year, for the past 5 years consistently.

ICNA Relief's staff is extremely dedicated and its holistic approach to helping families get independent is one reason they are one of the my top three charities for my donations. From car donations, a lifeline to employment, to transitional shelters where women in destitute conditions find their way to independence, to its food pantries that have multi-ethnic foods, the dedication to the under-served is apparent each step of the way!

I started volunteering with ICNA Relief in 2012. I volunteered for the food drives, toys drives, and back2school.
I never knew that hunger is so prevalent in our society. What ICNA Relief is doing is humbling and eye opening. It is hard to sleep at night while you know that my neighbors are going through tough times.
It's an amazing community, and I believe that this what our country needs right now. Faith in action.

For all the help that ICNA Relief USA is providing on daily basis to needy Americans I can not even begin to explain the amazing work they are doing. Starting from distributing food to the needy through their Hunger prevention program to Helping disaster torn citizens via their Disaster relief services. They also have Transitional housing for women and even for families in some states where they help homeless stand up on their feet and cope with challenges they may face. During Back to school they distribute school bags and other school supplies to children throughout United States. They also have counseling available in specific offices where counseling is provided as well. ICNA Relief USA also have free health clinical events where they provide medical services free of cost to anyone and everyone.

ICNA Relief is a fantastic organization dedicated to helping our neighbors across the country. Whether it's being the first to organize assistance for a natural disaster, supporting women in need with their Women's Transitional Housing, giving meat to those in need with their Qurbani programs, free health clinics for anyone who needs it, Muslim Family services, or helping refugees get to that next step, ICNA Relief is a fantastic, honest, moral organization that not only helps others, but shows the true spirit of Islam in the process. One need not look any further than the tagline "Muslims for Humanity" to see the summary of the organization, and one need not look any further than any one of their excellent programs to see that tagline acted out in real life.
