Our Programmes
Type1 Diabetes Awareness
Promote Awareness on Diabetes Through Education and Self-management for Children With Type 1 Diabetes​
What Is Type 1 Diabetes?
Type 1 (T1) diabetes is previously known as insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) or juvenile-onset diabetes. Most people with T1 diabetes are young - children, teenagers and young adults (but it can also affect older people). Managing the condition is by taking insulin injections, following a healthy diet, exercise and regular monitoring of blood glucose. (source: National Diabetes Institute – NADI)
How Do We Help Children/Youth With Type 1 Diabetes?
We educate children who are suffering from Type 1 (T1) diabetes on self-care and management of their condition as well as motivate and inspire them to go through their teenage and adulthood life with confidence.
How Many Children/Youths Have Benefitted From This Programme?
A total of 230 children with T1 diabetes, parents and caregivers have benefitted from our diabetes education and management camps in collaboration with NADI. Participants were given lessons on good dietary habits and how to build their self-confidence through interactive classroom lectures, fun games and activities.
