Social Welfare Department

We run a fully-fledged welfare department that investigates & assists those families facing undue hardship. Amongst the various aspects of social welfare we also give financial assistance to the terminally ill, food hampers, blankets to the destitute as well as counseling on domestic and other related problems. Coupled with this, the Institute for Islamic Services provides unparalleled platforms for self-help projects as a key element to address social and ecological problems in an innovative, sustainable and effective way.

We help people to set up projects like house-shops, fruit & vegetable vending, meat / chicken braaing in Marabastad. These also help in job creation and assist the unemployed to put a plate of food on the table for their families.
