With your help we can improve healthcare globally, by enabling health care workers to share skills, knowledge and training.

Story

In April 2023 I will be travelling to Cape Town with a team of
fellow type 1 teenagers and diabetes health care professionals from across the
East of England.

We will be travelling to Cape Town to attend a diabetes education
camp with children and young people with type 1 diabetes from across Cape Town.
Access to diabetes education and care for young people in Cape Town can be very
limited and so we are hoping that by raising money to run this education camp
we will provide them with an opportunity to come together to learn about how to
become independent in the management of diabetes as we share with each other
experiences of what it is like to grow up with type 1 in our 2 different
cultures.

We will also be helping to run and deliver a teaching symposium
for health care professionals from across South Africa about the management of type
1 diabetes in childhood. This will build on the work that our colleagues
started when they travelled to Botswana in 2019. We hope that by providing
greater access to education we will be able to improve outcomes for children
and young people with type 1 diabetes in South Africa.

As a team of young people we have been tasked with raising the
funds needed to deliver the symposium and run the diabetes education camp - any
donation that you can give will go directly to help improving the lives and
outcomes for children and young people with type 1 diabetes across Cape Town.

We have each been set the target of raising
£3000 but will be doing this in chunks of £500 to make the fundraising
challenge more manageable.

Thank you for your support
