Maldives Dive for Diabetes

The formation of human blue circle is a simple activity with a great visual impact. Diabetes Society of Maldives held an event to mark World Diabetes Day in which an underwater human blue circle was formed in Ebudhu lagoon using blue capes with Unite for Diabetes Logo. Around 300 divers participated from different organizations (Diveoceanus Paradise, Diveoceanus fun Island, Maldivers Diving Centre, Dive Bandos, Dive Club Maldives, Divers Lodge, Ocean Dive Maldives, Sun Diving School, Sea Explore, Maldives Police Services, Maldives National Defense Force, Maldives Customs Services and Maldives Tourism Promotion Board). Divers from different parts of Maldives travelled to Ebudhu Lagoon to join the underwater blue circle. The human blue circle was formed underwater. Divers swam in the formation of a circle displaying the unite for diabetes logo from aerial view and which signifies that everybody was united for this cause. A drone was arranged to take aerial view and cover the event through photography and videography. Event from air and underwater was broadcasted live on national television (TVM) from 2.30pm to 04.00pm. The aim of raising awareness about diabetes and its complications were the main objectives of this mega event. Awareness programmes were sent on local media channels (MNBC One, VTV, Dhi TV, and Raajje Fm) from 12th Sep to 23rd November with final reports covering the event. The event was a huge success and uniting whole country for the noble cause.
