The Canadian Muslim Response Network (CMRN), a coalition of some of Canada’s leading Muslim civil society organizations, including Canadian Islamic charities Islamic Relief Canada and IDRF, are joining forces with hundreds of volunteers across Canada, to launch a coordinated and united campaign from the Muslim Community to support the most vulnerable Canadians that have been affected by the COVID-19 Crisis.

The campaign is designed to especially help those who may be more vulnerable to the COVID-19 virus and to the effects of self-isolation.

Various kits containing essential groceries as well as hygiene and sanitation products to the elderly and families in dire needs will be distributed to hundreds of homes across the country in the coming weeks.

The nationwide campaign launches in the Greater Toronto Area on March 16th, 2020.
