ICNA Relief Spotlight

Dec 07, 2023

Check out the November Newsletter here.

This November, NACCHO had the opportunity to sit down with Fazal Wahab Mumtaz from ICNA Relief to hear a little bit about the work they do utilizing NACCHO funding. ICNA Relief “seeks to alleviate human suffering by providing caring and compassionate service to victims of adversities and survivors of disasters. They “strive to build healthy communities, strengthen families and create opportunities for those in despair while maintaining their dignity.”

Mumtaz, National Project Manager for ICNA Relief, walked us through their program and the things they have done to support refugee, immigrant, and migrant communities.’

“With NACCHO, I’m implementing this project in Virginia specifically,” said Mumtaz. “We help clients with their behavioral health, health literacy, hunger prevention, mobile clinics, seminars and workshops, and of course transportation services.”

Mumtaz also mentioned that ICNA Relief helps with employment, as well. Mumtaz brings lived experience to his organization being an immigrant himself, which creates an environment of trust and safety for his community.

He noted that through this funding, ICNA Relief has been able to help 300 families a month in different capacities. ICNA Relief was able to hire several employees focused solely on RIM community work through the NACCHO funding.

Another notable accomplishment is ICNA’s routine gathering of organizations and community leaders with expertise in several different areas. Together, they find resources, divide up responsibilities, and help RIM populations flourish within their community.
