Promise of Insulin
There are countless parents who have to choose between insulin & food for their children. We believe that every child with type 1 diabetes should have equitable access to insulin, test strips, education & treatment – so that they can fulfill their dreams & thrive!
By access, we not only mean the basic life support, but insulin as per the child’s needs, test strips to check blood sugar multiple times daily, health care professional consultation on regular basis & at the time of need, and not having to travel for miles to get their supplies. We want to make their futures as bright as their smiles. Our promise insulin to them requires school enrollment to assure a bright future! Pledge your support today!
Awareness through Educational Institutes
Every child, every teacher and every household should be aware about all types of diabetes, symptoms, prevention (where possible) and treatment. We are changing what it means to live with diabetes in Pakistan by educating the society to develop a sense of empathy towards the diabetes community and support them in living fully with this chronic condition.
Meethi Zindagi is reaching out to every child, adolescent and young adult studying in over 600 schools, colleges and universities across 3 major cities of Pakistan with the aim of making students aware and helping them understand diabetes.
Meethi Zindagi, at the very core of its philosophy, believes in Peer Support, a phenomenon that has recently gained momentum worldwide. Meethi Zindagi is the only national peer support organization in Pakistan with the diabetes community connected to the support groups online as well as through in-person sessions (T-Days), providing emotional and informational assistance, by sharing experiential knowledge. Peer support is recognized as an imperative concept by leading healthcare professionals and bodies, to support the diabetes community with everyday questions and empowering them to lead healthy and happy lives, knowing that there’s always someone they can look up to.
Together, we are helping each other in living beyond diabetes.
Education & Empowerment
In light of our mission and strategic aim, that is educating and empowering the diabetes community to lead their lives in a more structured manner, a team of incredible volunteers, including professionals and people living with diabetes, have developed a book & an education curriculum for people living with type 1 diabetes. It encompasses a variety of topics about diabetes self management.
The handbook will be backed up by workshops to empower people living with type 1 diabetes in 2021.
