DFM lends a helping hand to a great organization in need

Although we are focused primarily on community upliftment and socio-economic development within the sector we operate in, we also understand the need for support when it comes to organizations such as the Animal Welfare Society in Stellenbosch too. In this regard, we gathered together some food for both cats and dogs that the shelter is in dire need of. More so, we respect the time and dedication that each volunteer and worker at the AWSS endures to make the lives of countless animals, all the more better. As such, we also donated money to sponsor the staffs year end function, in the hope that they too have some well-deserved R&R.
