The Lohana Community of East London (LCEL) was founded in 1973 to form a body whose main objectives are to promote the cultural, religious, social, linguistic and economic welfare of Lohanas in the East of London. Since then it has grown steadily and today over 450 Lohana families, mainly from East London and Essex, are members of the LCEL. We are members of our parent body Lohana Community United Kingdom (LCUK).
