You can help us provide steady, ongoing support to children living with type 1 diabetes in some of the world’s most vulnerable communities. Regular donors allow us to plan ahead and work towards sustainable solutions.
We need 1,000 donors to give $1 a day, to provide the resources to support 1,000 young people with the care they need.
Your one-time donation makes a one-year difference. By giving in preset donation amounts, you can choose how your support will contribute to help the fight against diabetes for children and youth all year-long.

Start a Fundraiser
Sponsored runs/rides/lift-athons, concerts, special dinner donation days at schools, bar-mitzvah and bat-mitzvah presents, are only a few of the ways you can help to raise money for Life for a Child.
We believe that no child should die of diabetes and seek partners who share this belief. Corporate partnerships play a vital role, enabling us to support young people living with diabetes in less-resourced countries with the insulin and tools they need to stay alive and the education that allows them to thrive.
Bequests allow us to provide more support, creating a new future for more children living with type 1 diabetes in less-resourced countries.
Leaving a gift can take a number of forms such as the residue or a percentage of the estate, a specific amount of money, asset such as shares or more.

Given the health-related nature of the Programme, it is generally only possible for us to send experienced health professionals on site visits, and, even then, only in certain contexts. These visits are often self-funded and the participant often speaks the language(s) of the country they are visiting, in addition to English.
