Helping Diabetics living in Uganda

Sir Frederick Grant Banting, (November 14, 1891 – February 21, 1941) was a Canadian medical scientist and Nobel laureate, noted as the co-discoverer of insulin and its therapeutic potential. In celebration of his birthday and his life-saving discovery, please consider a donation to Diabetes Consultation Association (DCA). DCA has been in operation for 16 months. It is a non profit organisation that cares for, treats and educates children and teenagers living with type 1 diabetes. DCA was founded by Masereka Robert who got diabetes at age of 5 years and has thrived with it up to the age of 32yrs. Currently DCA receives 100 patients per month at its education center in Kasese district. 55% of type 1 patients now know how to treat themselves. DCA receives insulin from Insulin for Life USA for type1 patients. There are quite a number of people in the hard to reach villages who are suffering from type 1 diabetes and find it hard to reach our center. DCA has started an initiative to carry out outreaches to these poor resource settings so that we can help more people survive from this deadly condition. "As the director for this organisation, I am fundraising to purchase a vehicle to help DCA fulfill this obligation." ~ Masereka Robert
