As a vital pillar of the community, ICNA Relief tirelessly provides essential services that include health support, hunger prevention, transitional homes, disaster relief, family services, and accessible education.

“We have been working hard for the past 13 years serving families and individuals from all backgrounds, who are going through adversity,” remarked Dr. Khalid Memon, ICNA Relief Western Regional Director. “Whether it’s needing support for their food and nutrients needs, seeing a doctor by visiting our medical clinic, dental, vision, or receiving professional counseling therapy, everyone deserves help for free and with their integrity intact. Additionally, our refugee services have seen a 250% increase in clientele within the past two years. We take great pride knowing that our Fullerton, CA office is being recognized by Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva, who has been active in keeping in touch with all the amazing work in her district.”
