Our goal for the July 2021 to June 2022 financial year
Over the next 12 months, July 2021 to June 2022, our main focus is to get 20 Wellness Hubs up and running across the South Pacific. The aim of a Wellness Hub is to positively impact the community by taking them on a journey to whole-person health. This will be achieved by:
- Training 10,000 Toes Ambassadors
- Regularly running of Wellness Snapshots (health expos)
- Conducting various Lifestyle Intervention Programs (LIP) e.g. LMA (Live More Abundantly) CHIP, Forgive to Live, Journey to Wholeness, Smoking Cessation Program.
- Offering other community-based programs e.g. fitness clubs, cooking classes.
Fiji is currently piloting the first couple of Wellness Hubs and our aim is to have around 300 Hubs across the Pacific by the end of 2025.
You can support these Hubs.
$25 allows mentoring of an ambassador
$50 education resources
$150 for a screening kit
$250 for upskilling of a Health Professional
You can also donate to future mobile clinics that are needed in Kiribati, Tonga, and PNG. Contact [email protected] to discuss how.
These kits consist of a backpack, 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.
