ICNA Relief hosts food pantry event for many Ukrainian refugee families
Ukrainian families and refugees looking for refuge in New York City attended a food pantry giveaway Monday where they got a lot more than just food.
Mattresses, pillows, bedframes and more were available at ICNA Relief Food Pantry in Brighton Beach.
Ishaq Alar, hunger prevention and refugee protection services lead at ICNA Relief, emphasized the importance of helping refugees.
“Me myself being a refugee from Afghanistan, I have come across these challenges and how difficult it is when you come," said Alar.
ICNA Relief is currently looking to do more of these drives in the future and says it's willing to help any refugee or anyone who needs food.
