General Welfare

Support for everyone

We all can be in a dire need for help regardless of age, residence, or the circumstances we need help with. Despite the wide range of government-funded programs and services, they are not enough to help everyone. Muslimcare takes it upon itself to aid those undergoing hardships, and relieve their burdens through a variety of general welfare services.
