Detroiters with limited income working to manage their water bills and recover from last summer’s flooding received welcome news today as the Michigan Muslim Community Council (MMCC) and Islamic Relief USA donated $100,000 today to the Detroit Water Fund and Wayne Metro Community Action Agency.

Islamic Relief USA is one of the largest Muslim charities in the United States.
