Kids Arrive Hours Early To Receive Free Backpacks at ICNA Relief Dallas' Giveaway
By the mercy of Allah, ICNA Relief Dallas’ Back 2 School Giveaway was conducted at the ICNA Relief Dallas Food Pantry this past weekend. Children were waiting by the venue 3 hours before the event even started. We gave out 300 school bags packed with the needed accessories in only an hour and a half. Br Hamza Abdullah, Br Asif Mehmood along with his family and Br Zaid Fakhri came out to help. May Allah reward them.
Donate! $10 buys a child a backpack filled with supplies, $25 buys 3 backpacks filled with supplies and $100 is enough to provide 12 children with backpacks filled with school supplies.
A New Leg for Kafayah
By Maimuna Habeebullah
Meet Kafayah Yusuf -- a 28-year-old, bright eyed, good-natured young Muslimah. Upon first glance, you would never know the struggles she endures. Kafayah is from a town called Kaduna in Nigeria, West Africa. The sixth child of eight children, Kafayah learned patience at an early age. Growing up in Nigeria, the most populated country in Africa, she is no stranger to patience. Patience when the government does not always pay its employees in full and on time. Patience when the lights in her district are turned off in order to share electricity amongst the other districts. Patience when always having to walk or catch a moped to get where she needs to go. Patience when feeling the pangs of hunger but rationing the food supply to last longer.
Born and raised as a Muslim, Kafayah enjoys going to the masjid to be around believers. She was on her way to a masjid when a life changing accident occurred.
