Former Indian community leader Dr Kollamana dies aged 74


Former longtime resident of Qatar, Dr Abraham Kollamana, died on Saturday. He was 74 years old.
Dr Abraham died in his home town of Thiruvalla in the state of Kerala in southern India. Sources close to his family said he was undergoing treatment for kidney failure.
Dr Abraham, who was actively involved in community activities in Qatar, left Doha in 2019 after retiring from his job as a doctor.
A member of Indian Cultural Center (ICC) and Indian Community Charitable Forum (ICBF), Dr. Abraham was the founding member of Thiruvalla Friends. “He was an active person and always available to serve community members in need. He worked at the airport as a doctor and later joined the Ministry of Public Health. The Indian community in Qatar owes him a lot,” said Jiji John, a Doha resident and friend of Dr Abraham.
ICC President PN Baburajan remembered Dr Abraham as a “community-serving physician and a socially active person”.
Expressing his deep grief and sadness, the ICC President said in a statement: “Dr. the community.
“On my own behalf, as a close friend and on behalf of the ICC, I convey our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Dr Abraham. Pray to the Almighty to give sufficient strength to the family, friends , to near and dear ones to bear the loss.”
Dr. Abraham was a member of the ICC management committee from 1999 to 2001 and vice-president of the ICBF from 2008 to 2010. He made very valuable contributions to the supreme bodies despite his busy schedule as medical professional, Baburajan added.
Dr. Abraham was one of the founders of the Qatar Chapter of the Indian National Society of Culture and Arts (INCAS). “We extend our condolences to the family and loved ones of Dr. Abraham and pray for eternal peace for the deceased soul,” INCAS Qatar President Haider Chungathara said in a statement.
