Who We Are.
In 1969, a group of Muslim brothers felt strongly that there was an important vacuum in the Muslim community of Mauritius. While on the religious and cultural levels, we were well provided for – 110 mosques and some 600 madrassahs, a central socio-economic institution was absent. Hence the birth of the Islamic Welfare Foundation which by and by has come to assume the role of the Mauritian Bait-Ul-Maal. It is recognised by the Government as a Registered Charitable Organisation (Registration Number: 855) and is affiliated to the government sponsored Mauritius Council of Social Service.
