Society in MalappuramTourists, traders, students, pilgrims and a host of NRI visitors make Malappuram a unique place in Kerala. It has a mixed population of Hindus and Muslims, the latter being in majority. Malappuram has been a centre of art and culture in Kerala for a long time. It is known for a rich legacy of Vedic heritage along with being one of the earliest places for the study of Islam. Situated in the midst of low and high hills, the district is fed by the waters of the river Bhaarathappuzha.
The Malappuram society is being served by various charitable organizations running orphanage, old age homes, women welfare societies and educational institutions. Some of them are worth a mention to know their good work.
Orphanages in MalappuramThe most charitable work any society or its philanthropic institutions can do for improving the lot of its fellow beings is of running a good orphanage. Nothing could be better than a place that gives shelter to orphans and destitute. Some such places are listed below.

Old Age Homes in MalappuramThe sensitivity and civility of a society reflects greatly in how it looks after its senior citizens. The men and women who in their waning years have no one to look after them, no one to take care and no one to even talk to in lonely sleepless nights need all the help a society can provide. Malappuram has some good old age homes for the purpose.
