Building Bridges

Earlier this week, Priya Raghavan & I met with a truly inspi.jpgrational
lady, Bridget McNulty.  Bridget
& her partner, Mark Peddle are heading off on an incredible adventure
throughout South-East Asia spreading awareness about diabetes & life
beyond.

The pair are concentrating on developi.jpgng third-world countries where the
knowledge is sparse, or non-existent 
& their aim is to educate the local population on the importance to
spot the early symptoms of diabetes with the need to seek medical treatment
& a change of lifestyle.

Priya & I learnt the differences between level 1 & 2 diabetes,
where level 1 is genetic, but not hereditary, & level 2 is developed due to
lifestyle, which include poor diet & lack of exercise.

Bridget will be keepi.jpgng the Travelstart world fully informed &
entertained throughout her journey with informative & fun multimedia updates
via her Blog.

Travelstart is proud to announce that we have sponsored Bridget &
Mark’s air tickets for this mission, which will not only benefit areas, which
do not have access to this vital information, but will highlight the compassion
& expertise we have here in South Africa.
