KAN President’s New Year Message

President’s New Year Message:

“Let our New Year’s resolution be this: We will be there for one another as fellow members of humanity, in the finest sense of the word.” -Goran Persson

Happy New Year!

A New year awaits us with the gift of endless possibilities and endeavors. At the cusp of its dawn lets pause to ponder the year that’s fading away. It had its ups and downs, it had its learning moments, it gives us memories that we will cherish forever and it had its undeniable losses that changes the course of some lives. The realization of our bounty and recognition of another’s need awakes humanity in us.

KAN would like to start off this New Year responding to the suffering inflicted by Cyclone Ockhi. Human fatalities are real and heart wrenching. The non-compensable nature of the need leaves us helpless.

The least we can do to alleviate the pain is to provide some financial aid. As we come together as a community of Keralites outside of Kerala we can’t be nonchalant to the need of our people.

KAN’s Ockhi Relief Fund provides you with an opportunity to contribute and help out the suffering. We have a secure PayPal link through which you can make your valuable donations. Your generosity is greatly appreciated and will provide much needed relief to those affected.


Note: One of KAN’s most promised objective is to raise funds to carry out worthy humanitarian and charitable causes like relief of the poor, the distressed and the underprivileged. Any contribution made to KAN Charity would be considered tax deductible under 501(c) (3) Tax Deductible Contributions. KAN is committed to donate 100% of the raised fund to the charitable causes without deducting any administrative expenses.


Our first KAN event of this year starts of with KAN New Year Celebration and Family Night. The event is scheduled to be on January 13th at 3PM, evite to follow. Mark your calendars, make plans to attend and  invite friends who are new to our association. As always there is strength and fun in numbers. As birds of the same feather flock together, lets make some noise, have some fun and forge great relationships! Once again wish you all a very happy and prosperous new year!

Thank you
