Lifeblood

After the outstanding success of the 2007 documentary film Life for a Child, Academy Award-nominated director Edward Lachman teamed up once again with Eli Lilly and Company and the International Diabetes Federation to produce a heart-rending film about children with diabetes, this time in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Lifeblood features Congolese children with type 1 diabetes and follows their day-to-day lives as they struggle to survive in their impoverished capital city of Kinshasa.


FAQs

What is the Life for a Child Programme?

The International Diabetes Federation’s Life for a Child Programme is an international aid program that provides life-saving support to children with diabetes in developing countries.

The Programme works with established diabetes centres in these countries so they can provide medical supplies, clinical treatment and diabetes education to the children and youth in their care. The centres monitor comprehensive clinical outcome data and provide financial feedback to the Program management team in Sydney.
