Despite financial constraints preventing official assistance, the municipal manager brought the need to the attention of the management team, inviting voluntary personal donations.

The response was overwhelming, resulting in the donation of 36 pairs of school shoes, all from the generosity of the management team.

The shoes were handed over on May 30.

GSDM commends the initiative and the generous spirit shown by its management.
