Refugee Assistance & Creating Opportunities

Since its founding in 2014, Rahma Worldwide has held many programs and projects in its headquarter location in Detroit, from partnering with Mental Health America’s Southeastern Michigan Chapter to help those struggling with mental health, to first aid courses, food assistance, and container shipments sent overseas.

Some of our programs is to provide training to improve cognitive and employment skills and the educational level of women, along with hygiene and advance care skills development.

Currently, in Southeastern Michigan, we are undertaking the task of aiding more than 500 families in finding places to live, rent support, small individual supportive grants, immigration matters, finding supportive school districts, jobs, paperwork, insurance, etc.… the list is always growing.

We are also working to implement a vocational training program such as Sewing and plumbing as we encounter a high rate of non-English speakers, who arrived from countries with high poverty rates with some displaying virtually no hope for a reasonably happy future. Due to current national rhetoric, their attitudes are shifting to hopelessness. They came to the United States seeking a better life, hoping the first steps toward that dream would be learning our language, and culture to secure, meaningful employment so they could take their place along with other hard-working Americans.

Most refugees do not want to continually ask for assistance or aid from agencies but want to stand on their own feet! Doing worthwhile work like plumbing, learning to sow, or own their own business in landscaping, truck driving, food etc… is good motivator along with helping individuals contribute to the household, which helps refugees better to assimilate into the United States and their communities.

Container Shipments

Every Season for each year, we run multiple clothing drives as well as various drives for items & supplies to load onto multiple shipping containers that usually are headed towards Syria, Lebanon, and Yemen. Our Container shipments contain medical supplies for Hospitals, winter and clothing supplies as well as housing supplies for displaced refugees forced out of their homes.

At the end of 2018. we have run a successful shipment container & funding campaign in response to the Crisis in Yemen which we ran throughout the Detroit Area in which communities throughout the Area donated clothing. supplies as well as monetary donations to help displaced refugees in the Hudaydah & Marib Areas in Yemen.

In 2020

Rahma Worldwide planned to do more in Wayne and Oakland counties to better support individuals in the community with Job Training, Educational, and Business opportunity projects. In 2020 during the Covid19 Pandemic we have launched a response campaign in Michigan where we distributed food baskets to needy families in the area.

Mental Health & Wellness

Rahma Worldwide partnered with Mental Health America and seeks to improve the quality and availability of mental health resources and services for people from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds, including immigrants, refugees, and members of Southeastern Michigan communities. Addressing issues of language, culture, religion and other aspects of cultural diversity can promote greater equity in mental health care.  RW and MHA holds a monthly seminar featuring mental health professionals and cover a variety of topics that affect mental health in the country.
