Making a difference in the LIVES OF CHILDREN affected by TYPE 1 DIABETES

Type 1 Diabetes is a disease in which blood glucose levels are above normal. The Pancreas makes a hormone called insulin to help glucose get into the cells of our bodies. When you have diabetes, your body either doesn't make enough insulin or can't use its own insulin as well as it should. The person will be insulin dependent.

The Ethiopian Diabetic association is the provision of medicine to its very poor members based on donations secured. Medicines such as insulin, strips are given for free for those who are found in the lower income group of the society. The association always secures a certain amount of medicine to its members who cannot afford to buy medicines and who live in the regions.

Type 1 diabetic walk and run is a powerful and inspiring opportunity to unity as a community to support Type 1 Diabetes in Economical unprivileged children in Ethiopia. All proceeds from the t-shirt sales will go to the Ethiopian Diabetic Association. Every step you take is personal and together we are helping children with type 1 diabetes who can’t afford to buy insulin.

Please join us!
