Muslim Sisters of Dayton Doing Their Bit

The Dayton Daily News (9th March 2012) carries an article about the Muslim Sisters of Dayton:

"In January, Husein and a small group of women formed the Muslim Sisters of Dayton.

The organization promotes charitable activities throughout the Miami Valley as a positive representation of Islamic values.

“Our very first project was to help at (Kettering Hospital), supplying knitted caps for the newborn children,” Husein said.

“And we just completed a coat drive through Warm Coats and Warm Hearts, collecting 228 coats in two weeks,” Husein said.

“They were so happy with us, but we were more happy in helping them out.”

Many coat donors were friends, neighbors and co-workers outside the Muslim community.

“We don’t care who the person is, as long as they are kind to each other,” she said. “Anyone and everyone who wants can come to work with us.”

Next up? Serving the homeless and those in nursing homes, and working with the Women For Women International, a charity that educates and empowers third-world victims of war, human trafficking and other violence.

“Wherever there’s a need, we would want to help,” Husein said."
