Donations for Charity Organisations:
One of the objectives of NTA has been to help charitable organisations and humanitarian causes. Following the phenomenal growth of the Association in the last few years, we have donated money for the following organisations
Singer Chinmayi requested NTA to pay £500 to 50 daily wage families for the performance on 09-May-2020 webinar session. NTA duly paid with an appreciation note to Singer Chinmayi for giving NTA an opportunity to help
Donated £500 to Middlesborough Students through Dr Asokan and Mr Raman Kalyan
Donated £500 through Desikan sister’s work towards women self-help group in Madurai. In fact, they made nice NTA banner and the following message was received from them as a token of acknowledgement and appreciation
Sir, I don’t want to overload you. But for transparency sake I will send few more photos.
My sister’s grand daughter is keeping all the records and sending copies to me. She is hoping to complete aid distribution in the next few days.
Should I send some photos to Ram Vinayagam?( I don’t. Have his number)
People who received aid இதய பூர்வமாக உங்களுக்கும் NTA க்கும் நன்றி சொல்ல சொல்லி உள்ளனர். மிகவும் இக்கட்டான சூழ்நிலையில் (உற்றார் உறவினர் இடம் கேட்க முடியாத நிலையில்) அவர்களை தேடி வந்து நிதி உதவி அளித்தது பலரது கண்களில் ஆனந்த கண்ணீர். List போட்டதில் 60 பேர் வந்து விட்டதால் நான் என் பெற்றோர் நினைவாக மேலும் 10 பேருக்கு நிதி அளிக்க கூறி உள்ளேன்.

SUB: Thanking you for your help and generosity-( 30,000 thousand)
Loving regards to all!
I take this great opportunity to thank you for your help and support in helping the people who are affected very badly due to lock down in the country. Especially the poor people those who stay next to our compound. These people basically are migrants, there are fifteen families who stay under the trees, go village to village and sell some blankets, chairs etc. due to lockdown everything has been shut down therefore they were undergoing tremendously difficult time. We have tried to help these people irrespective of their caste, creed or religion by offering all their needs.
I personally thank you for your financial support and joining us in reaching out to these poor migrants and the poor people who have nothing to eat. Today we almost distributed vegetables, oil, wheat flour, rice groceries, sugar, tea powder and etc to 25 families. We also remembered you and they also thanked you all with sincere heart. It was a wonderful experience to see joy on their faces and sincere gratitude.
Once again I sincerely thank you for joining us in helping these poor migrants and the poor people with your financial support. May God continue to bless you all

NTA wants to continue to help the non-governmental, social charities every year. The more members we have, the more money we can generate for charity.
During the Diwali function 2008, all the food stalls and drinks’ stall were manned by volunteers. The food packets were purchased by the Association sold for a small profit which went into our donation.
NTA thanks all the members and those who have attended the functions as EVERYBODY has contributed for these charities indirectly.
