Kozhikode Jilla Pravasi Forum ( KPF) Olympian Abdul Rahman Memorial Rolling Trophy Football Match, on October 20th and 21st 9:30 PM to 1 AM both days Press Meet & Captains Meeting.
Since the day it was formed, the Kozhikode Jilla Pravasi Forum (KPF) has given priority to charity work, and during the massive flood in Kerala in 2019 and later during the pandemic, it was able to provide help in the form of cooked food and food grain kits to the common workers. As part of the charity activities, the organisation was able to provide air tickets to the Kozhikode airport free of charge and arrange chartered flights for the expatriates, including sick and pregnant women, to return home urgently when air traffic was stopped during the COVID-19 pandemic.
