Mission Statement & Vision

Ma’oon Inc. is a 501(c)(3) faith-based charitable organization whose mission is to help fulfill the basic needs of individuals and families. Our initial goal was to raise $25,000 in order to give away to needy individuals and families. Our vision is to establish a resource center and become a localized relief organization.  

Have you seen him who denies the Recompense? For that is the one who drives away the orphan. And does not encourage the feeding of the poor. So woe to those who pray; but who are heedless of their prayer, those who make show off, and withhold small kindnesses. Surat-ul-Ma’oon 107: 1 – 7
