The participation by the members & their family of the Middle East Region was the best and it was good to note that most of the prizes were won by the region which shows their interest and support for all the projects of WMC Global.
I would also like to recall the help and support rendered by all the provinces of the Middle East during the COVID-19 lockdown, by initiating immediate actions to minimize the trauma the citizens faced. The help desk established with a systematic approach was commendable and I had personally witnessed the timely help given to people I had connected with the region. My thanks to every member of WMC Middle East region and look forward to your continued cooperation from the present team and expect the same support from the next Executive Committee as well. Looking back, I can see WMC as a very strong organization that has completed its Silver Jubilee with active participation from all the regions spread all over the world, which we all can be proud of.
I am very much pleased to know about the launch of a website for a better connectivity among the various provinces and its members in the Middle East. The initiative of the region will be useful to the Malayalee diaspora who needs our support during any emergency and better connectivity which was highly tested during this pandemic period. I wish that the website launched by the region will be useful for all our members in the best interest of the development of our motherland “KERALA”.
