MALA and AMCS raise $3,500 for Flint Water Crisis

With the generosity of everyone involved, MALA, along with the Flint Muslim community, was able to present Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha with $3,500 to support this endeavor. She was recently named as TIME’s 100 Most Influential People.

Dr Mona discussed the physiological; psychological; and social long term effects of exposure to tainted water, and what needs to be done to mitigate the risks via early intervention; education; community support programs; and self-esteem building just as starters.

We were able to raise more than halfway of our fundraising goal of $5,000 to present to Dr Mona for the Flint Children’s Fund. Although we are very grateful for this, there’s still a massive void that needs to be filled to help these children and families.

Thank you to everyone that donated  with MALA: Muslim American Leadership Alliance and AMCS: American Muslim Community Services. Your generosity and funds will be well spent and are so critically appreciated.

Giving bottled water isn’t enough. This crisis will take at least a good 20 years to gauge the full longitudinal aftermath of the contaminated water. Continued medical care and community service programs are sorely in need.
