DSA Port Elizabeth news

Denim for Diabetes

Well done to Megan Soanes who promotes the Denim for Diabetes project in Port Elizabeth, she got CompRSA to participate in this project by wearing denim for a day (14 May 2021) to raise much needed funds for the Port Elizabeth branch.

Diabetes Wellness meetings

We are thrilled to report that after more than a year of lockdown we have had two successful Diabetes Wellness meetings so far this year, in April and in May.

They were both held at our main meeting venue in Newton Park. Sadly, the venues for the Malabar and  Springdale meetings are not yet available, but they are most welcome to join us at the main meeting.

Camp Diabetable

Our exciting news is that we have a camp for Type 1 children, thanks to the dedication and enthusiasm of Ernest Groenewald and his helpers, Paula Thom and Darren Badenhuizen. They are all young adults with Type 1 diabetes. There is still space available if you are in the Eastern Cape area.
