Seychelles Stroke Foundation was once again very active in 2023, hosting multiple activities for stroke survivors, patients and their families. One such event was their Seychelles Stroke Foundation lottery, drawn in May with its R200,000 star prize and which sold around thirty-five thousand tickets.

For chairperson, Noemie Woodcock, it was an “interesting year”, where they engaged with various organisations including the health ministry for World Stroke Day on October 29, and collaborated to host a talk for Cable & Wireless Seychelles team. The foundation also held a Dinner Dance at the Seychelles Tourism Academy as part of fund-raising efforts.

“For the festive season, the foundation members visited and distributed gift hampers to over 40 stroke survivors to bring a little bit of joy into their lives,” said Mrs Woodcock. “We wanted to make sure they know they are always supported and our role is also about bringing comfort to them and their families,” she added.

In 2024, Mrs Woodcock said they will pursue with community engagement work but focus on renovating a building for stroke survivors. “We want to have a place where we can all come to relax and enjoy each other’s company for a day. We have already been allocated a building but we need more funding to turn the project into a reality,” she added.

The non-governmental organisation set up in February 2018 is persistently located at the Green Corner Building in Providence.
