Post date: Oct 19, 2014 1:33:06 PM
As you all know ,though MARC is a cultural organization, a charity program called eye for the blind is the flagship program of association ever since it established and It is well known among our Malayalee community. Through the Lions Charity Trust Hospital in Paika, Pala, Kerala, every year we sent substantial amount for the eye surgery for the blind who never got a chance to see the world. In 2010 itself around 13 blind individuals were able to see the light through our program. In 2011, 18 blind people were undergone for surgery through our eye for the blind program and they all have restored their eye sight. The amount was hand over to the Lions Charity Trust Eye Hospital by the Chief Minister of Kerala, Hon. Oommen Chandy during the FOMAA convention at the Kottayam Mammen Mappilai Hall.
This year also we are having our charity fund raising program on Saturday November 8th 2014 at 6:30 PM at Kakiat Elementary School.
Association committee members will be trying to reach out to every family in the community. Even if we missed you for some reason, please come and encourage this great charity event.
Rockland community was always behind this program and your cooperation is very much expected this time too.
