ICNA Relief Featured in The Miami Herald for Work With Habitat for Humanity
ICNA Relief's Assistant Executive Director Br. Abdul Rauf Khan was featured in The Miami Herald for the organization's volunteer efforts in constructing a home for Miami mother Vernante Thélusma. From the article:
"Vernante Thélusma started Presidents’ Day at 7:30 a.m. at a South Miami Heights Habitat for Humanity building site.
By 11 a.m. the 27-year-old was in the midst of building her dream home, alongside dozens of volunteers from various faith traditions taking part in the second annual Habitat for Humanity Interfaith Build.
'It’s amazing that they’re all taking time out of their day to help me,' Thélusma said.
Monday’s build drew dozens of volunteers from Islamic, Jewish and Christian traditions to the Habitat for Humanity community, dubbed Habitat Landings.
'This is a positive way of telling people we have to work together,' said Abdulrauf Khan, assistant executive director of the Islamic Circle of North America USA Relief. 'For one day, if we can make one person happy, that’s a success."'
