Helmsley Trust agrees substantial grant to LFAC

IDF is delighted to announce that the The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust has agreed a grant of US$1.193 million over two years for IDF’s Life for a Child programme (LFAC).

This is the first time the Helmsley trust, a private New York-based foundation, has donated to IDF.

This tremendous success follows on from last year’s grant from the Fondation de l’Orangerie and its donors and is now the largest in cash donation that LFAC has ever received.

The grant will allow Life for a Child to expand to help more children with diabetes in more countries, and also enhance the provision of self-monitoring of blood glucose, diabetes education, and health professional training.

The Life for a Child Programme is currently supporting over 7,000 children with diabetes in 36 countries.
