YWD will be hosting the annual Nelspruit camp from 23 to 25 August 2019.
The 2018 camp was attended by 38 children from public hospitals. We are expecting an increase in the number attending the 2019 camp. Transportation expenditure is a challenge with this camp. The children come from all Mpumalanga, and the staff for the camp travel from Johannesburg. This includes the medical staff and the youth leaders. In 2018 Mpumalanga youth leaders were trained, but they still need to be mentored by the experienced leaders from Gauteng. Like most of our camps, the full camping fee is sponsored since the parents cannot afford to pay for the camp.
Please support this campaign. Even a small donation will help us make a difference. At YWD camps the children received the education and support they need to manage their diabetes and live a healthy life.
