The Bangor Daily News had a story about UMaine’s Muslim Student Association, which recently raised $4,000 to send to the Humanitarian African Relief Organization. The organization coordinates the delivery of food and water to drought-stricken camps, town and villages. Three UMaine students who are members of the organization, including Vice President Abdu Traheem Sbayi, were quoted in the story. Sbayi told the BDN the drought in Africa has affected all social classes.
