Hungerteam: Helping Local Refugees

UMF volunteers have given much in the last year, to help refugees who have settled in Florida, from collecting and delivering donations, to helping the refugees settle into schools and into their apartments, getting them acclimated in their local communities, helping with transport, doctors appointments, drivers licenses, jobs and much, much more. 

And now, we invite you to join us this Saturday morning at AACC's 5K Refugee Charity Walk where  100% of your donations go to support the WING refugee program. 

We hope to see you insha-Allah

Combating the Cancer of Extremism
"...the meaning of Islam is to "worship Allah, worship the almighty God, and serve your mankind."
The host then posed the question of how the Muslim community at large can do more to root out violent extremism, riffing off a comment made by President Obama. 
Khaki gave the example of the United Muslim Foundation that works on "uniting communities through interactive community service.""
