Life for a Child Support

Commenced 2008

Morocco has a large number of children with diabetes, and has a number of diabetes clinics. The Government system, along with support from private donors, cover most needs. However some poorer families, especially those with more than one child with diabetes, struggle to be able to afford self-monitoring of blood glucose.

We are supporting self-monitoring for 25 children in need.
