The IDF Life for a Child Programme is very grateful to have received the generous support of 9 year-old Lilly Branka, a young girl with type 1 diabetes treated at the Joslin Diabetes Center in the USA.
Lilly recently raised money for the programme by hosting a coin drive in her school and collecting donations from fellow students with the help of her family, friends and neighbours. She also collected recyclable cans and bottles and returned them for money. All together Lilly managed to raise close to USD 500, which was subsequently matched by two sponsors, bringing the total donation to USD 1500.
"I think no one should be without their diabetes supplies and that is why I love Life for a Child," said Lilly.
