Last week, Jacob from World Diabetes Foundation(WDF), along with Dr. Youssef Shahin from UNRWA and the program manager of the common project in partnership with HelpAge International, joined Amel’s team for a field visit to Amel’s Primary Healthcare Center in Tyre.
Jacob was introduced to the programs, services, and activities being implemented in the center. The main focus was on the management of the diabetic patients participating in the project of “Managing Diabetes for Older People”. The project, along with the psychosocial activities provided, are implemented in partnership with HelpAge International and funded by WDF.
During the visit Jacob had some direct discussions with the PSS volunteers and beneficiaries who shared a positive feedback on the activities. He also attended a peer support group and handcrafts session where he saw how the elderly people are happy coming to the center.
