Touching the lives of children with Type 1 diabetes.

In 2018 Youth With Diabetes (YWD) hosted 6 camps and touched the lives of 200 children with Type 1 diabetes. These camps were held in Johannesburg, Nelspruit and Bloemfontein.

At these camps children (mainly from under privileged communities) receive emotional support and education on how to manage their diabetes.

We rely on volunteers to manage the organisation and run the camps. But, like any other organisation, we sometimes need the services of professionals. This includes, for example the hosting and updating of the website, graphic design and printing of educational material. We also cover the travelling expenses of the Youth Leaders that serve on camps – also mostly from under privileged communities. To reserve a camping site for each camp we need to pay a deposit – even before we have advertised the date or started accepting registrations. 

For all these expenses we need funding. This campaign is a call for donations to fund YWD’s general expenses. 

Please support us and make it possible for us to plan and promote our 2019 camps and other awareness and education events.
