Help provide a diabetic child living in Mauritania with the life-saving supplies they need!
In West Africa, 3.3 million Africans currently have diabetes, and 80 percent of diabete 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. The supplies are especially expensive in this region of the world due to the lack of attention diabetes receives in West Africa. Without these supplies diabetics cannot survive.
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. Just $5.00 provides a child with diabetes with a box of test strips.
Make your donation of $5 or more an ongoing gift by checking the "Make this a Monthly Gift" box and you will help care for Diabetic children in West Africa, each and every month.
Association Mauritanienne de Lutte Contre le Diabète (Mauritanian Association for the Fight Against Diabetes) mission is to assist and advocate for diabetics in Mauritania through the use of clinics, free checkups, educational seminars, and raising general awareness about diabetes.
