raised of £3,000 target
With your help we can improve healthcare globally, by enabling health care workers to share skills, knowledge and training.

Story

This partnership will be with our paediatric diabetes colleagues at Tygerburg hospital in Cape Town in South Africa.

Our team of 12 young people with type 1 diabetes and our 16 diabetes health care professionals will travel to Cape Town in March 2023 and will work with our colleagues and fellow young people with type 1 diabetes from Tygerburg Hospital to help them to set up their first ever young people’s diabetes camps. This is a very exciting opportunity and will enable us to share the knowledge and experience that we have gained from having delivered diabetes camps in the East of England for 10 years. 

We will also have the opportunity to work with our diabetes health care professional colleagues at Tygerburg Hospital to co-deliver a 3 day education symposium on the management of type 1 diabetes in children and young people.

We are absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to work with the team from Tygerburg and are looking forward with enthusiasm to being able to share the real benefits that children and young people with diabetes can get from attending diabetes adventure and education camps.

We very much hope that you will be happy that your donation will support us in this new partnership and look forward to sharing updates on this exciting partnership opportunity with you on this page.

 

Thank you once again for your support
