Story

The diagnosis of diabetes for any child in any country is devastating. Fortunately, with access to appropriate education, insulin and equipment, children can manage their diabetes effectively. Sadly, most children living in developing countries do not have access to the life-saving medicines they need. As a result, they are chronically unwell, and prone to life-threatening episodes of high and low blood sugar levels. Many die quickly, others develop severe complications such as kidney failure, blindness and nerve damage. Those who survive frequently drop out of school, have difficulty getting a job or finding a marriage partner, and cannot support themselves as adults.

"Life for a Child" assists children with diabetes in fifteen countries (see map). Donations support the most needy children at diabetes centers in these countries. This enables them to receive the insulin, syringes, monitoring, clinical care and diabetes education essential to stay alive. The centers provide thorough clinical and financial trail feedback. HOPE worldwide is a partner in this program.

Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It's also the most efficient way to make a donation: The International Diabetes Federation's Life For A Child programme in partnership with HOPE worldwide gets your money faster and, if you're a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.

So please support Life For A Child now!
