INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP COUNSELLING
We have nurses and nutritionists who volunteer at our association every workday, providing counselling services to all of our members. Regular appointments can be made for check-ups every 3 months
Help a child with Type 1 Diabetes live a longer, healthier and happier life. Although the Ministry of Health provides some medications and supplies, parents still have to pay for additional equipment, supplies and other services to help their child effectively manage and control diabetes. To lighten this financial burden, we embarked upon an initiative called " Sponser-A-Child with Diabetes" since 2012.
On the second and last thursdays of every month we team up with local farmers to provide affordable fresh produce to members of the association and the community.
