Studies on mortality rates of diabetics in the Caribban show that more than half of the people who have had diabetes-related amputations die within 5 years. But, with proper management and education, it is possible for persons living with this illness to lead longer, healthier lives. The Daniel Life Plan Diabetic Support Services is excited to launch its Sole to Sole: Managing Diabetes campaign, a life enhancing project that aims to offer diabetic support services to Homes for the elderly and the differently-abled in Trinidad and Tobago
The Sole to Sole: Managing Diabetes campaign is seeking to conduct a community development project in hand and foot care in Homes for the elderly and the differently-abled. Our diabetic and palliative support services include therapeutic hand and foot treatment, massage for circulation and detoxificiation as well as workshops that educate and equip communities with the knowledge and tools important for diabetes prevention and/or diabetes management. The objective of the Sole to Sole: Managing Diabetes campaign is to educate communities on proactive approaches to diabetes prevention with an emphasis on preventing diabetes-related amputations and deaths.
The funds raised via this campaign will go toward the purchase of tools, supplies and equipment to be used in the set up and operation of stations at twelve Homes for the elderly and the differently-abled in the Arima and Piarco areas.
To this end, the Daniel Life Plan Diabetic Support Services team wishes to thank our supporters, well wishers and donors to this cause as we work together toward saving lives.
