Hurricane Harvey Survivors Need Aid IRUSA’s Disaster Responders work with American Red Cross to open emergency shelters.
You saw in our last email how devastating emergencies can be.
After we sent you that email Friday night, Hurricane Harvey slammed the Texas coast. We haven’t seen a storm like this in a decade.
It brought tornadoes and floods, 130 mph winds and power outages. Buildings were destroyed and homes washed away, and the worst-people were killed and hurt.
Now it’s stalled over Texas, dumping more rain as rivers rise and threaten entire neighborhoods.
IRUSA’s disaster response team started work immediately to get staff and volunteers on the ground to help. They’ll be working through Eid with the American Red Cross to shelter our neighbors who have lost everything.
This season has been a trying one, and you have been as generous and caring as always. We pray Allah (swt) will reward you for your humanitarianism. And we ask you, please pray and donate what you can to aid our neighbors in need in Texas. Every dua and dollar helps!
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 country. The fund is available under the Country/Region category, and under the Emergencies section of the donation form.
