Muslim Welfare Fund,(MUWELF), is an Islamic charity organization in South Africa that was established in 1997 by five Muslim professional organizations, namely: Association of Muslim Professionals (AMP), Movement for Islamic Culture and Awareness (MICA), The Companion, The Criterion, and Muslim Teachers Association of South Africa.

The need to establish this organization came as a result of the increasing rate of students’ failure to complete their educational career due to financial difficulties of their parents/guardians, and the emerging frustration of graduates of higher institutions, due to lack of gainful employment. In addition to all these, is the financial difficulties faced by vulnerable people, such as the widows, orphans, victims of riot and natural disasters, and aged people among others, many of which are Muslims.

It was against this background that the above Muslim professional organizations came together to establish this Welfare Fund, with the key mission of alleviating poverty and relief for the distressed, in the areas of education, health and economic empowerment, through mobilization and disbursement of funds collected from Muslims and ethically-qualified organizations, institutions and individual members of the public, in the country and abroad.
