Here at 10000 Toes, we are endeavouring to educate and create awareness of the Type 2 Diabetes epidemic that is currently happening in the South Pacific. We want to share the reasons why it’s happening, what we can do to help and what 10000 Toes is working towards. We want celebrate the success stories. We want to take YOU along for the journey, and we will do this with our STOMP STORIES.
Each week we will be sharing a story either via video, pictures, or articles etc. that highlights what is happening in different parts of the Pacific. Testimonials, interviews, limbs and lives saved, education and prevention, efforts being made in our cause and so much more. The 10000 Toes campaign is huge, there is so much work to do. Help us to turn the tide.

In partnership with ADRA Australia, the aim of this project is to reach 10,000 people already affected, or at risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes in the South Pacific Region.
What does $100 buy?
In the 10,000 Toes Campaign it will provide one village/clinic with a diagnostic kit. Our aim for 2019, is to raise enough money to purchase and distribute 2,000 diagnostic kits.
These kits consist of a back pack, blood pressure machine and glucometer. We will also provide heavy duty scales and a tape measure for checking height so that a BMI can be determined.
This is a vital step in fighting the tsunami of diabetes in the Pacific.
Pacific Island countries have been declared a “disaster region” for lifestyle diseases. Type 2 Diabetes and other non communicable diseases account for more than 75% of the disease burden in the Pacific today.
The 10,000 Toes Campaign is committed to saving the lives of those affected.
