Care for Diabetic Children in West Africa

In West Africa, 3.3 million Africans currently have diabetes, and 80 percent of diabetes deaths occur in low or middle income countries like Mauritania. For diabetic children, the annual cost of their diabetic supplies takes up most of the family's annual income, not to mention the additional cost of regular checkups and screenings.

Many families have to rely on clinics and organizations like the Mauritanian Association for the Fight Against Diabetes to provide them with supplies and checkups. Providing life-saving supplies like testing strips, meters, and insulin to these children has a huge impact on their families and communities.

You can help.
