ICNA Relief Dallas along with ICNA Relief Houston and ICNA National Disaster Relief Team are working diligently with government agencies, local Islamic centers and other relief organizations to bring aid to people affected by this natural disaster. Collectively, we are engaged in Mass Care including shelter support (mega shelter and Masjid shelters) and providing urgently needed supplies.
ICNA Dallas has pledged an initial amount of $10,000 to help those who are affected by the hurricane.
Here’s How You Can Help:
1. Donate Supplies
The immediate need is to provide hygiene kits, new clothes and food supplies. ICNA Relief Dallas will be sending trucks full of these supplies to the local shelters and to Houston as soon as the roads are open.
a. Single Day Houston Trip
A lot of work needs to be done in coming months as thousands of houses are uninhabitable. ICNA Relief team would like to encourage the community members to sign up to go to Houston during the coming weekends and do their part to assist people affected by this Hurricane.
b. Volunteer for recovery and cleanup efforts:
Assistance on a larger scale will be needed once water level recedes and the cleanup begins.
ICNA Relief is experienced in providing relief efforts such as the Disaster Case Management they implemented in 5 counties post hurricane Ike. They have local & national case managers on standby.
