IDPC Seychelles contributes to the community
As part of activities to mark the International Day for Peace which falls tomorrow, Tuesday September 21, 2021, the International Day of Peace Committee (IDPC) of Seychelles organised a collection of non-perishable goods/items at the STC hypermarket.
The activity started at 9am and ended at 2pm and the IDPC welcomed contributions in kind and also cash donations.
The commodities and monies collected will be used in good faith by the Seychelles Red Cross for the ones in need and the most vulnerable of our society. Hence, the donations in cash and kind will be formally delivered to the Seychelles Red Cross on Peace Day tomorrow.
