Since its inception, one of Islamic Relief’s primary goals has been to provide rapid relief for disaster victims. Partnerships in some three dozen countries and local staff in affected areas maximize Islamic Relief’s ability to respond to urgent situations with speed and efficiency, as well as cultural sensitivity. Islamic Relief’s emergency aid efforts often include the distribution of food, water and clothing; the construction of temporary shelters; and the administration of vital medical care.

IRUSA’s Disaster Response team is among first responders for emergencies in the United States. In some cases, team members have also been sent to provide relief internationally. Learn more about DRT and how you can become a volunteer via irusa.org/drt.
