India is a land of diversity and heritage, with a rich cultural history of over 4500 years.
The Memon community is one of the oldest and most respected communities of our country. As per the Times of India February 2014 article on Memons, the total population of Memons in the world is 18 lacs of which India has the population of 9 lacs Memons. That’s half the memons of the world living in India.
The WMO India chapter has been created with an objective to exterminate issues faced by the Memon community in India. Chapter strictly believes in following the mission of WMO “Unite, Uphold & Uplift”.
India chapter plays a major role in improving the quality & standard of living by resolving the educational, economical, cultural, social, rehabilitation, medical and any other problems faced by the less fortunate of our community.
The chapter also promotes the culture, language & dignity of the community and it is a bridge between the Indian & global Memons.
With the support of the WMO central committee, India chapter has come up with many phenomenal & large-scale projects such as providing housing to the less fortunate & deserving families by building housing complexes in the states of Maharashtra & Gujrat.
Youth wing & Ladies wing of the chapter are also very active and regularly conduct remarkable events such as Food pack distribution to widows, Eye camps to treat cataract and vision problem for senior citizens, Meat distribution drive on the auspicious occasion of Eid al Adha. Also exceptional events like ‘Just One Fist of Rice’, ‘The Gift of Sight’ & ‘Forgotten faces’ have been introduced by the India chapter and then been taken global.
The India chapter’s main objective is to carry out projects that will promote, advance and uplift the general welfare and well being of the community. Given the large population of Memons that call India their home, this is no easy task. India chapter continues to strive in the endeavour to bring comfort to the lives of the less fortunate and grows in strength from year to year.
