The Latin Ladies Association Of Malaysia (LLAM) is a non-profit organization, whose mission is to promote Latin values and cultures in the Malaysian community, while collaborating with various charitable institutions.
During the last 43 years of existence LLAM has proudly worked to bring assistance, help and joy to those in need, with grants for education, individual counselling, medical support and equipments for those in need.
In the year 2013, the LLAM organized the VI Latin American Charity Ball on 16th November 2013 at Hilton Hotel, KL and successfully raised RM 134,000.00 which was donated to the Association for the purpose of the construction of a new canteen building for Klang Special School.
