Lifesaving Care for Children with Diabetes

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.

Help diabetic children in developing countries take control of their disease! Your donation provides a child with livesaving diabetes supplies.
