JOIN US AS WE FIGHT AGAINST THE EMERGING GLOBAL DIABETES EPIDEMIC.
Studies worldwide, including a fact sheet that was published by the World Health Organisation (WHO) show that diabetes will be the 7th leading cause of deaths worldwide by the year 2030. The same studies also indicate that the less advantaged members of our society are most vulnerable to it.
To help address this issue, Diabetes West supports LETO- a non-profit organisation that drives an outreach programme that is aimed at educating members of our rural and marginalised communities about diabetes. These educational initiatives will go a long way towards helping to reduce diabetes risks, lessening complications and deaths due to diabetes, reducing costs and treatment frequency and improving the quality of life of those who are living with diabetes.
These programmes also form ideal, tax-deductible Corporate Social Investment (CSI) initiatives for corporates who wish to invest for maximum impact in the communities within which they operate. Click here to read more about LETO and how you can help to make a difference too.
