Vienna Malayalee Association now about to make an incredible difference to another poor homeless family.

A.A. Markose, from Ayumala house, Chemberry, Kannur, Kerala, India has a rheumatic disease and after a long-term treatment is now able to move his fingers but not able to lift his hand. His wife, Thankamma, is not able to go to work daily due to her husband's sickness, hence is only able to do some odd jobs, which unfortunately don't even cover their daily expenses.

They have one hard working boy who is in 11th grade.

The family is currently living in a rented one room shelter and is not able to meet their shelter rent and other minimum expenses with Thankamma's small irregular income.

Some good-hearted people from Chemberry, Kerala, have given them 4 cents to build a house on.

If we all get involved in this project and make a small contribution, this family will have a house and a better life by the end of this year.

2016 Charity project completion report

On behalf of Vienna Malayalee Association we would like to thank everyone for your generous donations and support. Your personal commitment was incredibly helpful and allowed us to reach our goal. We appreciate and thank you all for your great support!

After having received various applications, Vienna Malayalee Association selected the family Manoj and Jaya with three children from Mattom, Thrissur, Kerala, India for our charity project 2016. The charity house was built and given to the family on January 15th, 2017.

The 4 cent land on which the house is built on was donated to the family by Rev. Fr. Varghese Palathingal, who used to be the Vicar in St. Thomas Forane Church, Mattom.

Manoj is a carpenter and his wife grew up in an orphanage. Their eldest son had to undergo a major operation called cochlear implantation. Hence, they were struggling to pay the expenses of the treatment and couldn't afford their own house.

The work of the house started with the foundation stone, which was blessed and laid by Vicar Rev. Fr. Davis Panamkulam. Kattila veypu was blessed by Rev. Fr. Varghese Palathingal. The charity house was blessed by Vicar Rev. Fr. Davis Panamkulam and inaugurated by Adv. V.S. Sunilkumar, Hon'ble Minister for Agriculture, Kerala in the presence of Rev. Fr. Varghese Palathingal, Rev. Sr Elsy Chazhoor, VMA office bearers and members of Vienna Malayalee Association as well as other well-wishers.

Vienna Malayalee Association will continue our mission to build a house each year for a poor and homeless family in India.
