Idhayangal Charitable Trust focus is on Type 1 diabetes. We see a number of children with insulin requiring Type 1 diabetes struggle for want of funds to buy insulins and consumables.
Idhayangal trustees request generous contributions from our donors to help especially poor children with type 1 diabetes lead a healthy normal life. These children die withour insulin. We have around 800 children in Coimbatore region alone of which a significant minority find it difficult to sustain insulin for want of funds. We request donors to be generous in contributing towards making a difference to even one poor child with type 1 diabetes.
With several of the ex-trustees and present trustee involved in diabetes care, this area has always been close to our hearts. We particularly are against discrimination of young girls with type 1 diabetes in our country.
Idhayangal has sponsored a small fridge for a young boy Master SivaPrakash with type 1 diabetes, whose diabetes control is erratic due to storage issues (see photos) , Dr.O.R.Kumaran, & Dr. Subramanian graced the occasion in the presence of the trustees Dr.Sujeetha Damodaran & Dr.Krishnan Swaminathan .We have also sponsored advanced diagnostic aids for two young girls that has directly led to improved glucose control . All the three children’s families could not afford the above costs.
