DSI recently joined hands once again with Nirogi Lanka of the Sri Lanka Medical Association on a campaign to promote the use of safe, shoes for those suffering from diabetes.
The primary objective of the partnership is the creation of awareness about the importance of providing proper foot-care for diabetic patients with special emphasis upon the use of precisely designed footwear to protect the feet of patients with poor sensation and circulation caused by long standing high blood sugar.
Given that a significant percentage of the country’s population is diabetic, DSI’s CSR initiative also serves as a practical and valuable means of raising awareness about diabetic foot itself.
Nirogi shoes are available in six special designs for men and women at affordable prices ranging from Rs. 999.90 and above. These special shoes can be found in over 100 of DSI showrooms across the island to better cater to the needs of those suffering from the disease.

Thusitha Rajapaksa, Managing Director of D. Samson & Sons (Pvt) Ltd, represented the company at the signing of the memorandum, which was also signed by Professor Chandrika Wijeratne and Dr. Ruvaiz Haniffa, the President-Elect of the Sri Lanka Medical Association.
