Help diabetic children in developing countries take control of their disease!
Diabetes awareness, management, and access to care and supplies have become a priority in the developed world. But diabetes also affects a growing number of children in developing countries.
For many children in the developing world, diabetes is an urgent, life-threatening condition. A lack of insulin, syringes, monitoring equipment, and care prevents these children from controlling the symptoms of this disease. The consequences are daunting, and include complications such as blindness, amputation, and kidney failure. Without access to insulin, children with diabetes can die in just one week.
Access to insulin and syringes is the first step to saving a diabetic child's life. The Life for a Child program is helping children in over 40 countries by providing them with insulin, monitoring equipment, and supplies they need.
You can help. Just $5 will give a child in need 5 days of insulin and supplies.
International Diabetes Federation and the Life of a Child program supports the provision of the best possible healthcare, given local circumstances, to all young people with diabetes in developing countries, through the strengthening of pediatric diabetes services in these countries. Their vision is that no child should die of diabetes.
