10% of the 422 million people with diabetes rely on insulin, just like you rely on oxygen. Their pancreas does not produce insulin. They will die without external insulin.
Meethi Zindagi seeks to provide personalized healthcare to the underprivileged children with type 1 diabetes, on the similar standards as provided to those affording private care, thereby reducing the gap between the care provided to the rich and the poor. Our collaborating doctors are free to analyze and prescribe whichever insulin they presume to be best for these children. The support package includes insulin, test strips, glucometers, psychological and social support and self management education!
But we don’t stop here! We improve their health and well-being, while ensuring school education to ensure bright futures!
Promise of Insulin, as one of its pre-conditions, requires school enrollment for the supported children. Resultantly, our supported children will have improved economic productivity to support their own medical care, once they reach adulthood. Every supported child has joined a school, if was not already going to one!
Most of these children can accept donations from your zakat as well. Support a child today!
Starting with a 100 children in and around 3 major cities of Pakistan (Rawalpindi/Islamabad, Karachi and Lahore), the project aims to support 5000 deserving children with type 1 diabetes throughout Pakistan within 5 years time. Doctors across the cities are collaborators in the project.
