Welcome! >>

…to ReliefLab! We’re so happy that your internet travels have led you here. Please stay a while. We would offer you some tea, if virtual tea were a thing. This blog is a project of Islamic Relief USA (IRUSA), an international relief and development organization that has been helping others regardless of gender, race, or religion for over 25 years. The aim of ReliefLab is to be a vehicle for community growth by sharing stories and ideas, facilitating conversations, and working together for a better world.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” -Margaret Mead

We are looking forward to highlighting awesome community service initiatives, sharing inspirational stories, advocating for social justice, and elevating diverse voices.


We have a diverse team of contributors, and are always looking to expand our family of writers. To submit a blog or get more information on how to get involved, just shoot an email to ReliefLab at relieflab@irusa.org.
