I'm excited to announce the kick-off of our LaunchGoodcampaign for AMHP's initiative, EnabledMuslim! EnabledMuslim is an online network for community support to help fulfill the physical, social, and spiritual needs of Muslims living with disabilities and of their loved ones.
Almost one-third of all families in the US are affected by disability. AMHP estimates that over 600,000 American Muslims are living with a disability, yet our community does not always provide adequately for their needs.
After an extensive needs assessment, AMHP launched EnabledMuslim in September 2014 as part of its ongoing efforts to address disability issues in the Muslim community. Now, we need your help to take it to the next level. With the funds we raise, we hope to:
1) Develop a fully web-accessible online support network so Muslims living with disabilities and their loved ones can connect with one another about shared concerns.
2) Continue to create and enhance new resources specific to Muslims living with disabilities, empowering them with the information and tools they need to make their own decisions about their physical, mental, spiritual, and social well-being.
