Mangalore Cricket Club (MCC) Doha, Qatar one of the prestigious and pioneer Clubs in Doha, Qatar; is known for uniting all Mangalureans under one roof with the sole intention of upholding and sustaining the rich culture and traditions of Mangalore ever since its inception in 1992. MCC has been celebrating the feast of Nativity every year with the sharing of new corns and blessing of the fruits of people’s labor through the annual ‘Novem Jevann’.

She is the only female member in the Advisory Council and heads the Prison team under the umbrella of ICBF which does charitable and welfare works in particular for Indians in Qatar.
