Charities are a huge part of what we do at Mumbai Connexions and our members value making a difference. We work closely with a few NGO’S to provide donations and support, and we encourage our members to get involved where they can.
*We hope to resume volunteering activities at our nominated charities once the pandemic situation allows. For further information contact email@example.com
