Texas Muslims Donate Bus for Native-Americans

The Houston Muslim community has committed to raise $9,000 to benefit the
Jumano Apache Indian Tribe located in Redford, Texas. The funds will pay
for a used school bus, with any remaining funds donated for school supplies.

Tribal elders say some children have missed school due to the need for
transportation.

Donations can be sent to the local ICNA Relief account in Houston. Any
checks for donations can be made out to “ICNA Relief” please write in the

up your donation from a place and time of your convenience. Please contact
