The IDF Life for a Child (LFAC) Programme encourages the diabetes centres in countries it supports to conduct camps or activity days for children and young people with diabetes.
To this end LFAC, in collaboration with the Diabetes Education and Camping Association (DECA), has developed Guidelines for conducting diabetes camp activities in a less-resourced country.
"Camp" is a term that includes not only overnight stays, but also activity days, support meetings, and get-togethers for children, adolescents and young adults with diabetes and their families.
More than 10,000 children and youth living with diabetes in Africa today have type 1 diabetes and they will not survive without financial support. It only costs US$30 a year to support a child or young adult with diabetes with life-saving insulin, and they are in serious need.
On behalf of the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), we would like to express our gratitude and appreciation for your donation to the IDF Life for a Child Programme (LFAC) .
