Malayalam Foundation believes that God has given us a wonderful life. We stand very high and to realize the difference we have to simply look at the less privileged and downtrodden people and their living conditions. Then we will know where we really are. Let us express our thanks to God by extending all possible help and support to our fellow people in whatever small manner we can. It will definitely change the lives and living conditions of the less privileged and poor people.

Any suggestions or new ideas to start new projects from our esteemed members are most welcome.
