«When you develop two substantial foot ulcers and are put on the waiting list for an amputation, you really start to take this disease seriously. It took a large amount of willpower, positive thinking, and help from the various medics and paramedics to see me through. After 16 very long months of being in a wheelchair, receiving foot care and dressings at APSA’s Foot Care Clinic, I was able to walk, feel my muscles, and play golf once again! What a great sense of achievement it has given me – to be in good shape, and able to enjoy the company of my children and loved ones.»

Since 2014, the Foot Care Caravan travels to different regions in Mauritius. The aim is to help prevent amputation and to reduce the impact that complications associated with a diabetic foot can have. Our dedicated team of nurses, dietitians and health educators meets and assists those suffering in this way.
APSA Rivière Noire is a branch of the APSA Diabetes Care Centre providing local services to the most vulnerable in the west of Mauritius. The team implements a holistic approach by identifying vulnerable groups, screening and providing follow-up through training sessions to ensure an improvement in managing diabetes, and general overall health.
