IRUSA’s Disaster Response Team: The Blueshirts on the Front Lines

IRUSA’s Disaster Response Team (DRT) is dedicated to helping communities that have been adversely affected by disaster not only around the world, but here at home. When disaster strikes, DRT responds quickly to get vital resources to survivors as effectively and efficiently as possible

IRUSA is a member of the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD), an association that promotes communication and collaboration between organizations active in disaster relief as well as government organizations. IRUSA’s DRT is also the first Muslim organization to partner with the American Red Cross.

We Need YOUR Help

As much as we’ve been able to accomplish, there is still so much more to do. In working together, we can make the vision of a better world a reality for so many of our sisters and brothers who have been affected by disasters across the country.

There are two ways to help:

  1. Volunteer
  1. Donate

$500 can support on-going reconstruction projects for families who have lost their homes 

$100 can supply resources for temporary shelter 

$25 can help increase capacity to do damage assessments for the homes of emergency survivors

PLEASE NOTE: Donations made to IRUSA’s United States fund may serve urgent or long-term programs in the United States.
