Association Badil is one such organization that is performing heroic work to keep as many of these kids alive and healthy by helping them with their daily struggle to find access to diabetes care including insulin, syringes, monitoring strips, glucometers and doctor's visits. After extensive consultation with Badil, it appeared that the most direct way we can help is by covering the cost of the annual insurance premium of the families of the affected children as they cannot be covered individually by the government health program RAMED if they are under eighteen years.
The volunteer health workers have established a first list of fifty families that are in most need. Some of these families have more than one diabetic child. The cost per family is about 600 DH which is roughly $70. These families have provided the names, addresses and dates of birth of their children with type 1 diabetes. They have also committed to immediately buy the insurance coverage for themselves and their children and provide the necessary verification to the Association Badil that is helping to care for their children. The name and contact information of the sponsored child can be provided to any generous donor who would like such information to follow up or keep in touch.
To donate, you can either do so via PayPal at www.AnwarSeedofHope.org or in person to myself on Sundays between 11a.m. and 2:30 p.m. at the Toronto Moroccan School at Ecole Etienne Brulé 300 Banburry Road, North York (Leslie and York Mills Rd.) or in person to Mr. Mohamed Sekkak, President of the AMDT.
Although my son's mission is going to be a lifetime commitment to helping such children in Morocco, we have fixed for ourselves the target of raising the equivalent of 30,000 dh within one month to cover this first list of identified children and families in need.
On behalf of Anwar and on behalf of the many girls and boys in Morocco whose lives are going to be touched by the generosity and commitment of kind people like you, I urge you to support this initiative by contributing as much as you can .I would greatly appreciate your interest, suggestions and assistance.
