I'm a volunteer now, but I was previously a client. Al Maun Fund offers a helping hand to those who need it most. I constantly hear stories of those Al Maun Fund has helped. I also know how tirelessly the admin works to continue providing to those in need.

I can't say enough about Al Maun Fund. They truly are a relief for so many families who are in need. When someone is in need, they sincerely strive to help in every way. Instead of constantly looking down their noses asking how did you let it get this bad, they look for ways to solve the problem. What a comfort to those in need.

I have known about Al Maun Fund for a couple of years now. I first heard about it from someone I know who had been helped by Al Maun. The work they do is phenomenal. And unlike some groups, they provide more than financial assistance. They are kind and sincerely concerned for those they help. They offer lots of encouragement to those in need. For my friend that was worth just as much as the financial assistance. These are the reasons I support Al Maun fund.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Knowing someone they helped.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Would like to see them be able to help more people with the help of more donors.

I've worked directly with these wonderful sisters and can personally vouch for them. They have helped SEVERAL Muslim families out of dire situations including food assistance, domestic violence, homelessness, eviction assistance, utility assistance, Islamic and secular clothing assistance and new shahadah packets. ♥ They are amongst the number one Muslim organizations on the East Coast and possibly in the country. Every little bit counts and these ladies have given their hearts to helping the people understand Islam and understand the needs of the Muslims.

I would like to say that Al Maun Fund has been a great asset to the Muslim commnity. I am currently a volunteer,but have been aided from Al Maun in the past. I have not known Al Maun to turn anyone in need down nor judge them based on their need. They are the charity you turn to when in need.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have been aided from this organization as well as donated to this organization. I know for a fact they help those in need.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would not change anything persay but would love to see Al Maun have their own building and more people involved in helping this charity exceed it's own expectations in aiding those in need.
