PLEASE NOTE: Donations made toward IRUSA’s United States Humanitarian Aid fund in excess of the support requirements for this particular emergency may be used to support other important emergency or long-term work across the region.
Hurricane Harvey Pummels Texas; Irma Slams Florida
IRUSA’s Disaster Response Team mobilized quickly to aid those affected by Hurricane Harvey, a one of the most powerful storms to hit the nation in a decade. Even after it was downgraded to a tropical storm, Harvey caused fatalities and devastation across large swaths of Texas.
While continuing work in Texas, IRUSA Disaster Responders are also connecting with local emergency teams and community groups in Florida to address immediate emergency concerns for those affected by Hurricane Irma. Part of the work has included certifying several local mosques so that they may serve as official emergency shelters.
IRUSA Serving Neighbors in Need
More than 46 million Americans—including nearly 16 million children—live in poverty. That’s about one in seven of us! Our neighbors are suffering from hunger, homelessness and poverty. That’s why the IRUSA community is dedicated to fighting hunger here at home by providing food aid to those in need: just like we recently did, during our largest food aid program of 2017, Qurbani / Udhiyah.
And during emergencies, these conditions get even harsher—like those recently affected by by Hurricane Harvey in Texas or in 2016, by Hurricane Matthew. Your Disaster Response Team helped those in need, but these efforts are not possible without your support: give to USA Humanitarian Aid.
Our dedication to humanitarianism in the U.S. lasts all year long, alhamdulillah. So, join the movement now to fight poverty here at home by volunteering, donating and advocating for humanitarian programs across the country.
