Malayalam is the mother tongue of Kerala. Learning the mother tongue in a foreign country has its own limitations and the freedom to use it varies. Striving to use Malayalam language as a medium of communication for the young generation has been made easy through having a Malayalam class run by the Wellington Malayalee Association Inc. This is a dream come true especially for parents who are happy to see their kids learn, write and speak in their own mother tongue.
The purpose of Wellington Malayalee Association is to promote and facilitate the cultural, educational, social and economic welfare of the Malayalees and the surrounding community at large. Aligning with this mission, WMA currently puts together Malayalam classes on a monthly basis. We have been conducting these classes at various different locations for past few years. Malayalam classes for reading/writing skills of our beloved language for our children. This activity is conducted via voluntary help from members of the community and is meant to cultivate and foster our cultural heritage among our children. Here are the details of the first class

Saving a life is something that is easy. You may not think that you are capable of saving a life. If I told you that it would take just 15 minutes of your time to save 3 lives? Would you give 15 minutes of your time to save those lives? Every 3 seconds, someone is in desperate need of blood.
We all need blood to survive, but for sick children, accident victims and cancer patients just to name a few – a shortage of donated blood means the difference between life and death. There is no substitute for blood. Blood donors are the only source of blood for these sick people. Their life depends on members of the community donating blood.
Requirement of safe blood is increasing day by day for which regular voluntary blood donation is vital for blood transfusion services. Towards this, we encourage you to join us and be a part of this service on an as required basis.
