Community Impact

At Homa, we are committed to creating a positive social impact on the refugee population. There are over 89 million people who are forcibly displaced worldwide. We firmly believe that everyone should have access to wellness resources - that's why we provide free, culturally-appropriate community wellness classes that are easy to access.


With years of experience working with refugees in the US, sub-Saharan Africa, and the Middle East, Laila noticed a severe lack of culturally-appropriate resources for refugees in terms of holistic wellness practices that address the mind-body connection.


Refugees are eight times more likely to suffer from PTSD and nearly three times more susceptible to depression. Traditional western therapies may not always be available or resonate with those from refugee communities, which inspired Laila to come up with a new approach based on her qualifications as a board-certified Ayurvedic Practitioner.


Ayurveda is a holistic practice that offers a unique way to heal the mind through the body. Laila saw this as an excellent opportunity to bring Ayurveda to refugees worldwide. After all, most countries that refugees come from have some form of indigenous herbal medicine that is similar to Ayurveda.


Our offerings contribute towards a meaningful cause that aims to help refugees heal holistically. Together we can make a difference! You can become a changemaker through donating below or purchasing our products! With your help, we can change systems and the wellbeing of a generation! 


Homa is proud to collaborate with resettlement agencies like the IRC to offer these valuable workshops to refugees in need. Together, we strive to empower refugees and foster a strong sense of community.
