Muhammadi Welfare Association is a non-profit organisation with great ambition to serve the community. Our current support base has crossed geographical boundaries and has brought together people from a variety of cultures and socio-political backgrounds to share their ideas and direct their endeavours towards the common goal of preparing for the Imam (atf). This has been promoted through various on-ground projects and a sustained electronic campaign via our online website.
