About Us

The Springfield Malayalee Association was formed in 2017 to promote and celebrate the Malayalee Culture and Events.

SMA is a charitable organisation which was started by a group of local IT professionals, lawyers, doctors and nurses, and aims to highlight the importance of blood and organ donation, as well as supporting other community initiatives.

Through festivals, fundraising, education and partnerships with community and charity organisations, our goal is to bring people together in the shared spirit of peace, harmony and karma.

Who are the Malayalee?

The Malayalee are an ethno-linguistic group native to the South Indian state of Kerala and the Union Territory of Lakshadweep and have the Malayalam language as their mother tongue.

The Malayalee community in India has a history of immigrants to the region from various parts of the world, as well as a unique sub-culture owing to the tropical environment of the state.

  • It has been an honour working with the Springfield Malayalee Association, and sharing in their great work and community spirit.
