Not For Profit

Our preferred charity for the 2012 Summit in Singapore and beyond is Life for a Child’, an official programme of the International Diabetes Federation.

The vision of the Programme is that  ‘No child should die of diabetes’, and ‘Life for a Child’ supports the provision of the best possible healthcare, given local circumstances, to all young people with diabetes in developing countries, through the strengthening of established paediatric diabetes services in these countries.  Operating since 2001, ‘Life for a Child’ now assists over 11,000 children and youth in 41 developing countries.

‘Life for a Child’ relies on donation of insulin and other associated products and services, and undertakes to distribute these to the most needy children and youth with diabetes in the world. In this context, supply chains play a big role in the overall programme.

See the short video clips about this Programme, also, and don’t hesitate to offer your support. We will be donating some of the surplus from this Summit for this purpose.
