Celebrating Stroke International Day
The Cable and Wireless Seychelles (CWS) Foundation donated SCR50,000 to the Seychelles Stroke Foundation on 28th October 2022 to coincide with ‘World Stroke Day’ celebrated on the 29th of October of every year.
The Seychelles Stroke Foundation is about to celebrate its fifth year since its inception and is on a mission to raise stroke awareness and reduce the impact of stroke on the Seychellois community. Strokes are on the rise in Seychelles, especially amongst the youth and CWS commands the hard work that is being done to sensitise the public and bring more attention to an issue that has so often been stigmatised in the country.
As a company, CWS has offered its continuous support to the Seychelles Stroke Foundation, not only by committing to their annual dinner dance fundraisers but also through monetary donations to assist them in realising their objectives for the Seychellois community. The CWS Foundation recognises the need for more empowerment and education within society and would therefore like to see an increase in early detection which may help to potentially prevent strokes. CWS gladly supports causes of healthcare as these are pressing issues that may affect any one of us and are immensely thankful for its partnership with the Seychelles Stroke Foundation, which is why they were proud to have pledged their support once more to ensure that stroke survivors, victims, and their loved ones get the essential attention that they deserve.
