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 USA is an extra ordinary example of unity, compassion, community empowerment and serving humanity beyond the boundaries of religion, race and ethnicity. The staff is supportive, tender hearted, helpful and selfless. They are feeding hundreds of thousands hungry people across the country, providing shelter to hundreds of homeless women who have no one to take care of, helping refugees to get back on their feet, providing hot food on streets across America, help rebuild homes of disaster survivors and providing healthcare facilities to people who can't afford to have expensive insurances. I will volunteer and donate for rest of my life.

These are some great quotes that we should all live by as human beings:
Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
My main reason to move back to Orlando was to help others. With many great organizations out there helping people, ICNA RELIEF was the one that stood out for me. ICNA Relief USA staff, volunteer's and anyone that is associated with them is compassionate, selfless individuals who go above and beyond to fulfill their mission. I am proud and honored to work with this organization who serves communities throughout the USA. Their services and programs touch the lives of some of the neediest among us; truly saving lives and creating extraordinary communities wherever they serve. There is a phase that we use on a daily basis. It goes like this; YOU CAN TALK THE TALK, BUT CAN YOU WALK THE WAK. Please come out and walk the walk with ICNA Relief's cause to help and serve the people! ICNA Relief doesn't need you, the people need you.....

What ever we do we have to do as a calling, as a passion we have to throw our head, heart, and definitely hands into it to make it successful. That's what I saw in this staff and volunteers.

Empower others I felt that's goal.

Greatness doesn't comes from a position but from helping build the future. We have an obligation to pull others UP. I saw they take this responsibility as an honor and accepting the challenge and obligation to actually make it possible for our next generation to come and achieve the level of greatness so they can be on the right path in future.

I have been volunteering for ICNA Relief, USA since two years. ICNA Relief helps people with every requirement of life; from providing furniture, kitchen items, and food inside the house to cars outside the house. This organization supports refugees from scratch until they are self sufficient.

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.
