To provide relief, education, training and advocacy to people in the United States.
UMR works alongside community partners across several sectors to provide relief, education, training and advocacy to people in the United States.
Most recently, UMR has responded to the COVID-19 emergency, reaching out to families affected financially and providing them with cash assistance to help them during this challenging time. In addition, UMR has been distributing food parcels to underserved families to help ensure that children have enough food to eat while out of school.
UMR provides training for capacity-building of Muslim Non-Profit Organizations at Indiana University in order to multiply the number of well-trained community organizations in service of vulnerable populations toward increasing their resilience.
In 2018, UMR responded to three natural disasters: Hurricane Florence, Hurricane Michael, and the California Wildfires and provided the following services and support: hygiene kits, cash vouchers, bedding sets, and other emergency support. When responding to natural disasters within the U.S., UMR works with respective authorities and community organizations to identify and prioritize needs of each type, mobilize resources, and plan the delivery.
This Ramadan, the theme of our campaign is #PassthePlate because we want to give people living in poverty the opportunity to celebrate, rather than worry about whether they will have enough food to feed their family.
In the wake of the recent attacks in Quetta, Pakistan, the Muslims of the United States and members of MWB are calling on the community to stand in solidarity with our Shia Muslim brothers and sisters in Pakistan. MWB Texas Austin was proud to take part in “A Call for Solidarity”, a joint event between Sunnis and Shias to bring us together, and call for an end to religiously motivated violence.
UMR is partnering up with One Warm Coat to host Winter Coat Drives throughout the country this fall and winter to ensure that nobody had to endure the cold temperatures without a jacket to keep them warm.

UMR University Chapters
With over 19 recognized UMR Chapters across the U.S., young people have answered the call to action by regularly hosting events that cater to the needs of their local communities. UMR Chapters have held hygiene kit drives, project downtowns– in which they make and deliver food to the homeless, held a number of clothing drives that were donated to shelters, supported local organizations that target the disadvantaged, and responded to disasters.
