Shelly Beach Lions Club is a strong pioneer for diabetes awareness and education across the South Coast, hosting bi-monthly sugar testing session at one of the local malls, and supporting people living with diabetes with education and support when possible.
Working together with NPC Intercement, Shelly Beach Lions Club donated a Blood Glucose Monitoring System to Zethu Gambushe, who works at the NPC Aggregate Quarry in Margate. Abigail Kok, a resident nurse at the NPC Simuma Plant, will help Gambushe manage her diabetes on her weekly visits to the quarry.
“As diabetes is one of the five key foundation projects at Lions International Worldwide, we are delighted to be able to help Zethu with this donation of the testing machine. As we know, diabetes is a silent killer,” said Shelly Beach Lion Clint Fray.
“Together with the help of NPC Intercement’s support from Sister Abigail, we know Zethu’s life whilst living with diabetes will be made just a little safer,” he continued.
