Diabetes, being one of the most dangerous diseases around the world, needs to be brought to everyone’s attention and taken seriously.
The project “Are You Sugar-Free?” took place on the 28th of July, at Dangolla with the help of Dr.Lekamge.
We were able to screen 40+ people and later on direct the patients to the doctor for advice. The patients were given “kola kanda” with juggery before they departed from the clinic.
We, as the Rotaract Club of Kandy, are very happy to have taken this initiative, because we were able to bring to the awareness of these patients about the risks they were in, and how to prevent further complications, leading a healthy and a happy lifestyle. We hope to do more of these projects that would enrich the lives of our fellow citizens.
