The Malaysian Australian New Zealand Association (external link) (MANZA) was formed in 1950 to serve as a social network for Australians and New Zealanders living in Malaysia. MANZA now claims to be one of the largest and most active expatriate organisations in the country. The New Zealand High Commissioner acts as a Patron of MANZA. The principal aims of MANZA today are to provide information and support to members, organise social and sporting activities and to raise money for local charities.

Membership is open to people of all nationalities and MANZA offers activities to suit everyone - singles, couples and families. There are regular monthly functions for members, along with other special events throughout the year. Members receive a monthly magazine outlining upcoming functions, holiday reviews, function reviews and activities and events around Kuala Lumpur.

To join, or find out more information, telephone (60 3) 2284 7145 or visit the MANZA (external link) website.
