Muslim and Methodist volunteers are teaming up to help a town hard-hit by Hurricane Matthew.
Islamic Relief USA and the N.C. Conference of the United Methodist Church will send volunteers to rebuild homes in Princeville, a town still recovering from extensive flooding in the aftermath of the hurricane last October.
Islamic Relief USA, a national humanitarian organization, will bring Muslim volunteers from across the country on five trips to Princeville starting this month, said Hani Hamwi, who manages the organization’s disaster response team.
This is the organization’s second trip to North Carolina for Hurricane Matthew recovery. Last October, in the weeks immediately after the storm, Muslim volunteers aided at a shelter in Pembroke.
