Over 30 young people with Type 1 DIabetes in Mandalay, Myanmar, were joined by volunteers from Ayeyarwaddy International and Shrewsbury International School for a fantastic weekend of fun and education.
An A4D Diabetes Family camp is an opportunity for families who have children with Type 1 Diabetes to come together and learn about the condition. This helps young people understand how to manage their condition effectively, helping to secure long-term health.
This was the second A4D Diabetes Family camp in as many weeks and it was fantastic to see so many supporters at the event. Volunteers had traveled far to be there and we would like to thank them for their enthusiasm on the day. Their support really makes a difference to the children on our programmes, giving them hope and confidence for the future.
Our partners on the ground make all the difference
A huge thanks to Prof Myint Nilar, under whose leadership the team from Mandalay Children’s Hospital are facilitating the care and support of disadvantaged young people with Type 1 Diabetes. And of course to Shrewsbury and Ayeyarwaddy School, for whose support we are extremely grateful.
