Lending a hand

Hundreds of volunteers answered the call and participated in the annual SXM DOET event on Friday and Saturday. The volunteers worked on various community and social projects, ranging from replacing pallets on the walkway to Sister Magda Primary School to beautifying the walls outside National Institute of Arts (NIA) to restoring a birdhouse near Little Bay Pond.
