Viruses, like COVID-19, affect us all. Whether we have the virus, know someone who does, are practicing “social distancing” as a preventative measure, or are monitoring the spread of the pandemic across the globe, we are all immersed in information about coronavirus right now. We must remember that this is not a disease relegated to a certain race, religion, country, or group–we are all susceptible and we are all in this together.
That’s why Islamic Relief USA is doing its utmost to provide you with information and resources that may shed light on the virus and related health care, the situation facing our most-vulnerable communities, like refugees and our low-income neighbors, and on how to stay calm amid much of the chaos.
