A British Malayalee philanthropist has been chosen for the VK Krishna Menon award in recognition of his outstanding professional and altruistic achievements, contributions and services to the community and wider multicultural society.

Dr Cyriac Maprayil, Executive Director of the institute has reportedly told the Times of India that Mavelil, President of the UK Knanaya Catholic Community, will receive the award at a function here hosted by the V K Krishna Menon Institute later this year.

Originally from Kerala, Mavelil has been living and working in the UK for over a decade.

The V K Krishna Menon award is given to outstanding Indian patriots who have served in the Diaspora and also distinguished themselves in various fields including science, literature, business, politics, diplomacy and philanthropy.
