Making A Difference


Kerala Flood Rehabilitation

One Step at a Time

With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with this challenge. Homeless Outreach is something that we take very seriously, and our team is working each and every day to make a positive impact.

MAC is pleased to inform you all about the completion of two houses which we have built as part of the rehabilitation post the flood crisis in Kerala. The unprecedented environmental catastrophe has caused grief to thousands of families across the state of Kerala and MAC has decided to share the love and extend the hand of help to a few affected. The response from our Malayali community was overwhelming. After many discussions and enquiries, two families were chosen. All work was closely monitored and funds were released periodically to aid completion ASAP. 

MAC is proud to complete the project before time and hand over the keys. Respected executive members from the previous MAC committee have taken part in the small ceremony held on Tuesday (25/6/19).

MAC would like to appreciate all members and well-wishers for all your participation and cooperation during this period.
