|Synopsis|| Diabetes Mellitus, commonly known as diabetes, is a metabolic disease characterized by high blood sugar.
Although it may seem harmless at first, it can develop into much more serious health conditions such as blindness and heart attack.
Singapore currently has the second highest number of type 2 diabetes patients among developed countries, with approximately
440000 cases. Worse still, this number remains on a rapid increase, and is projected to reach 1 million by year 2050. Yet, it is
worrying to see that many Singaporeans, especially the younger generation, lacks the awareness of the disease and methods to
prevent it. Furthermore, organisation such as our beneficiary, the Diabetic Society of Singapore (DSS), lacks the manpower
and monetary resources to effectively aid the diabetic community.
Hence, we, Project Vitalize, a team of 4 dedicated core members working hand in hand with a 38-strong Organising Team,
aim to raise awareness on diabetes among youths, clearing common misconceptions and ultimately promoting an active,
preventative lifestyle against diabetes, while also aiming to raise funds for our beneficiary.
We have conducted many activities, including street sales, busking as well as our very own concert. We also created our
own Youtube web series on Diabetes, as well as having weekly posts on information regarding diabetes on various Social Media
