Traditional extended families are becoming strained due to younger generations becoming busy with work, overcrowding, child care and complex nature of ill health. We plan to engage those who are reaching of life in a culturally inclusive manner to increase and enhance their quality of life through friendship and advocacy.

Our vision is to bury needy Muslims with dignity and in accordance with their wishes and faith. Muslim Burial Fund has been setup to support the needy members of the Muslim community.
