On Sept. 7, 2017, Amendment #115 was slated to be put forth by Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Florida) to the annual Appropriations Bill to damage and disadvantage Islamic Relief Worldwide (IRW) by excluding it from all US federal funding with immediate effect ——the amendment was instead withdrawn.

Thank you to the House Representatives, Islamic Relief staff, partners, coalitions, volunteers and donors who mobilized and advocated against Amendment #115.

The briefing below, provided by Islamic Relief Worldwide (IRW) in advance of the Amendment hearing, provides a true picture of the work and values of IRW and refutes damaging allegations against the organization.
