How inspiring! There’s a new foundation for children with diabetes, and it’s been started for the sole purpose of helping these kids meet other diabetics, and learn how to live better lives. The Sugarbabe Foundation is a community-based organization looking after the interests of all children with diabetes and their families in KwaZulu/Natal.
These children range from infancy up to the age of 18, and are from different socio-economic and racial groups. The organization, which operates from Westville, has no affiliations with any hospital or practice. Its main objective is social support to help children with diabetes to learn life skills and manage their condition better. Activities include camps and picnics where children with diabetes can meet, enjoy themselves and develop coping skills and friendships with other kids in a similar situation.
Sugarbabe Foundation is urging parents of children with diabetes or any interested individual to form support groups to assist children with diabetes. One of the tasks of these support groups would be to mobilize all children with diabetes and make it possible for them to attend camps which the organization coordinates.
Sugarbabe Foundation operates from 47 Norfolk Terrace in Westville on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9am to 12pm.
