I'm sharing an appeal from the Life for a Child organization, which I support whole heartedly. Life for a Child Type 1 diabetes is a relentless condition; often painful, always pitiless. Imagine, however, caring for a child with T1D in a low-income country where insulin, syringes and blood glucose test strips are prohibitively expensive, and insulin pumps or continuous monitors are unthinkable. In these circumstances, T1D often becomes a death sentence. If these thoughts move you, please visit the new website for Life for a Child (USA) and consider circulating to friends and family via email and social media. You can use the website to make a tax-deductible donation to the organization, which urgently needs your help to continue providing insulin, syringes, and test strips to over 18,000 children in 46 low and middle-income countries. Life for a Child (USA) works closely with the Life for a Child parent office in Australia, which is affiliated with the International Diabetes Federation in Brussels. This wonderful, bare-bones program helps children and families in the developing world through rigorously monitored support to established health centers and diabetes associations. The Sydney-based staff collect annual data on each and every child, and are regularly audited and evaluated by external agencies. Life for a Child urgently needs your help today, as its operating funds are increasingly scarce. Please consider making a recurring tax-deductible donation, which will allow the organization to make vital, long-term commitments to children and families struggling with T1D. Our goal is to recruit 1,000 new U.S.-based donors by December 31, 2016. Please help make this happen! In today’s world, there can be no justification for children dying for lack of insulin.
