The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust

The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust has supported the IDF Life for a Child Programme through provision of grants since 2011. These significant grants have allowed Life for a Child to work towards a number of key outcomes in improving care for disadvantaged children and youth with diabetes in developing countries. These include:

Lilly Diabetes and Lilly Foundation

Trividia Health

Trividia Health has supported LFAC with diabetes supplies since 2007. Originally Nipro Diagnostics Inc., it changed its name in 2015 due to a change in corporate ownership. Trividia has continued the commitment offering blood glucose monitoring equipment to LFAC at a markedly reduced price. This means many children now have a blood glucose meter, test strips and lancets, therefore permitting self-blood glucose monitoring.
