"The BEST CHARITY is to satisfy a hungry person"
-Prophet Muhammad (S)
This Ramadan we're taking it up a notch with our first eye-opening, eyebrow-raising, Poverty Tour. MA'RUF is providing an opportunity for the Muslim community to learn more about poverty in Milwaukee with a tour of the Guest House-Milwaukee's largest publicly funded homeless shelter, an Iftaar serving and feasting with the homeless, and an Iftaar at Walkers Point Youth Center- a shelter for runaway teens.
Milwaukee Muslims will gather together and break their fast with Milwaukee's most impoverished individuals. We promise to give you a dynamic, life-changing experience that will make your Ramadan more meaningful.
