"A child with diabetes, who is inadequatly supported, is inevetably exposed in the medium term to ocular complications or worse yet, to blindness or kidney failure." said Dr. Amina Balafrej, Chief of Pediatric Diabetology, Children's Hospital of Rabat.
Association Badil is the implementing Partner in Morocco at the Hôpital d’enfants in Rabat (Dr. Amina Balafrej and colleagues)
Badil is a Moroccan association that is performing heroic work to keep diabetic children alive and healthy.
Donating to Badil and sponsoring underprivileged Moroccan children with type 1 diabetes will ensure that these children have access to full diabetes care including insulin, syringes, monitoring strips, glucometers and doctor's visits. This would sustain their lives and dreams and turn the children and their families into citizens with rights.
"Children are likely to live up to what you believe of them."
