Diabetes Centre Interventions

About the project

At least 4.2 million South Africans live with diabetes – the highest prevalence in Africa. For many, it’s poorly controlled, putting them at risk of developing complications all of which are preventable. These include blindness, kidney failure, stroke, cardiovascular disease and amputations. In recent years, diabetes was the second leading underlying cause of death in the country.

Diabetic foot ulcers that lead to lower limb amputations are unfortunately common. They negatively affect patients’ livelihoods, quality of life and families, and our already burdened healthcare system.

The Trust has committed to raising R1.85 million to supply the Diabetic Centre with the cutting-edge equipment needed to improved diabetic outcomes. Help us ensure the Diabetes Centre has the cutting-edge equipment it needs to move the needle on diabetes in the Western Cape.
