The items included bags of rice, gallons of cooking oil, packs of soft drinks, boxes of washing soap, detergents, packs of T’Roll, boxes of sanitary towels etc.
Club President Briana Boadi, president of the Club in a post presentation ceremony interview pointed out that “we at GIS Interact Club believe in sharing, and there is no better time to share with our esteemed friends than this festive season.
“We believe in impacting positively on society, and I believe these items will go a long way in putting smiles on the faces of our friends. “It is our collective desire that as students we can work together to grow academically and vocationally in order to become great citizens that our country can be proud of.”
Headmistress of the School, Madam Mahela Narh, expressed profuse thanks to GIS for the gesture saying, “We are indeed grateful for this gesture, it will certainly make this Christmas a memorable one for the children.
“GIS has been a consistent donor, and we want to say a very big thank you again, you don’t despise us, but you draw us closer to your programs and events".
