Detroit’s Muslim community helps those in need during water crisis: Giving water is the best form of charity, according to the Prophet (PBUH)
MMCC and Islamic Relief-USA gave $100,000 to Detroit residents this week to help with the water crisis. Over 25,000 Detroit residents have had their water shut off since last year due to aggressive collection policies brought on by the Detroit bankruptcy.
A check of $50,000 was given to both the Detroit Water Fund AND Wayne Metro Community Agency to help Detroit residents get water for their homes.
This act of charity was inspired by our Islamic teachings and our desire to be a positive force in revitalizing Detroit. This has been widely covered by the media (Detroit News, Huffington, NPR, and more).
Detroit’s water problems have been highlighted by the United Nations, the Daily Show and many others. Detroit has given so much to the Muslim community over the decades, we are compelled to help it recover.
So many other great efforts are also underway, including the the Huda free medical and dental clinic; Zaman International; DREAM for Detroit, the Ramadan Fight Against Hunger, Muslim Family Services, Detroit Muslim Mission, and many more! Join these efforts now, be a part of the solution!
