Silver Star Diabetes is a registered Charity operating in the UK & India, that was launched in January 2007.The Charity runs Mobile Diabetes Units (MDU). There are currently over 3 million people diagnosed with diabetes in the UK and another over 1 million people who have type 2 diabetes but do not yet know it. The main role of the Mobile Diabetes Unit (MDU) is to carry out important diabetes testing in the community and to promote culturally sensitive healthcare, with particular regard to the high prevalence of diabetes in the major towns and cities of Britain.
The charity runs 4 Mobile Diabetes Units (MDUs) 2 in the UK based in Leicester (The Headquarters) and London and 2 in India in Goa and Mumbai. The MDUs travel out into the community, to places of work, worship, community events, High Street and retail parks testing the public for free for diabetes and offering lifestyle advice. During these visits its staff has discovered thousands of people who have a propensity for diabetes who did not know about it.
Brightsun Travel is proud to donate to this organisation and is its appointed travel partner.
