$500 for Africa

Young Sisters of MUNA has decided to raise at least $500 for women, children and those in need in Africa due to the droughts that have claimed thousands of lives.

Our group plans to give through Islamic Relief, a charity organization in the United States and in many countries. Islamic Relief is one of the only organizations with people on the ground in countries such as Somalia.

YS Muna has a come up with three ways to collect money for this fundraiser: collection during our Educational Session and Eid Al-Adha party, individual contributions of $5 and $10 in fund raising per person, and a possible bake-sale during Thanksgiving Weekend.
