The outfit has on its inauguration donated 83 pieces of iron sheets to support victims of floods in rebuilding their houses in the occasion graced by governor Prof Kivutha Kibwana.
The community has also contributed Sh 3.3 million to purchase shares in Ene Microfinance with a target of Sh 5 Million before the bank opens its doors. 
The objectives of the community, according to its chairman Richard Kinovi include uniting all Makueni residents living in the Coastal region to support economic growth of the members and mobilise resources to invest in their mother county.
 They also target the actualization of use of the county products in Mombasa to spearhead the economic development of the county as well as partnering with other Diaspora chapters such as the London based-UK chapter to mobilise resources and exploit potential economic opportunities for members and the county.
Governor Kivutha Kibwana has lauded the Mombasa chapter for demonstrating what a model diaspora community should do to institutionalize its operations and set itself for greater socio-economic and political influence of its mother County. 
He said in the near future, diaspora chapters will be opened in Nairobi,  London and other cities with the hope that the diaspora community will create links with each other and sustain a vibrant discourse on the development of their mother county
