Snehanilavu 2018, the fund raiser event under the campaign “Bahrain Different Thinkers – 2018 for NIARC” on Friday 22nd June 2018 at Al Raja School Auditorium, Manama, Bahrain.

The event was a Huge Success with an audience count of above 800 people that too on a summer evening where Bahrain witnessed more that three programs for the malayalee expatriate community in this small Island. Snehanilavu was an event with a humble motive to raise funds for the development of NIARC. The occasion was blessed by the presence of the Chief guest Rev. Father Severios Thomas and Celebrity comedian, Guinness World Record Holder Mr. Nizam Calicut along with the talented Singers and Dancers from Bahrain. The program offered the audience a blend of mailanji songs, folk songs, cinematic songs, dance performances and comedy numbers by the artists. NIARC received spot donations from many kind hearted audiences and thus paved the way to success in achieving the goal of this campaign. The overwhelming response to this event motivated and strengthen the Ideas and Motives of Bahrain Different Thinkers to continue to serve the Society and needy people in Bahrain and in Kerala.
