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!
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.....

Seeing the ICNA Relief staff and volunteers giving their all inspires me to work harder. The compassion of our Refugee Volunteer Services shines through even on the weekends. I have seen volunteers and staff dedicate even their weekends to mentor, advocate and teach refugees as if they are their own family members.
I cannot compare it to any other nonprofit that focuses more on other priorities - events donors, or gaining popularity rather than making the client their sole focus. Having a balance between marketing and meeting a client's goal is ultimate proof to the success of a nonprofit. I can see the sincere intentions and successes of ICNA Relief through the people they serve. You can see it yourself every single day: www.facebook.org/icnarelief
