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.

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.

The back to school give away, Women's housing project and homeless feeding programs alone make this organization worthy of your donation. Their low overhead is commendable, they consistently do more with less.
