In the month of April, as an activity of its Social Development sector Tibet Charity distributed shoes amongst some of the elderly and underprivileged of McLeodGanj.
These individuals consisted of people who were in much need of this basic necessity. With funds partially provided by St. John Ambulance and funds from Tibet Charity, 20 pairs of shoes were distributed.
The Tibet Charity team personally approached every underprivileged individual with queries regarding their shoe sizes before making the purchase and handing it over to them.
Arrangements were made to ensure that the shoes reached the persons who were unfit or unable to collect the shoes themselves whereas, the rest collected their pair of shoes from the Tibet Charity office.
We would like to extend our gratitude to Debra Chrystal from the United States for providing the elderly with socks which were distributed along with the shoes.
We are extremely thankful to St. John Ambulance for the kindness they extended and their support in this noble cause of helping the needy.
