Reaching HIV+ Muslims in America

rahma

There are over 1.1 million people in the U.S. currently living with HIV according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  HIV, along with other important issues such as mental health and domestic violence, are still taboos in the Muslim community by and large.  Founded by Khadija Abdullah, an AmeriCorps VISTA,  in 2012, Al-Rahma is striving to raise awareness about HIV, AIDs, and related issues and help those who need it.

Please view their site: www.haverahma.org, and help spread the word.
