Commitment and Service
In an earlier statement, he said that a majority of the Dunedin Tamil Society community are full-time employed or are studying, and yet contributed their time and energy to make this event happen.
“It is amazing to see how the Association, which started as ‘Dunedin Tamil Friends,’ has grown big today, and I am sure that our community will continue to grow, transform and gather more and more strength in the coming years. Our only goal, objective and passion is to make our people feel at home away from home,” he said.
