for our 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. And during emergencies, these conditions get even harsher—like right now, in Louisiana, where thousands of people are fighting to survive severe floods. Your Disaster Response Team is on the way to help: please support by giving to USA Humanitarian Aid.
And, during this Qurbani/Udhiyah season, our IRUSA community is pledging to follow the Islamic tradition of giving vital food aid in the form of nutritious, halal meat to help thousands of people. We’re also pledging to ride 40 miles across the nation to raise awareness about domestic poverty and to provide 40 Qurbanis—that’s about 2,000 pounds of meat—to neighbors in need this year. Join the challenge or support a rider.
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.
