Diabetes New Zealand
Diabetes New Zealand represents and supports people with diabetes.
They've been around for over 50 years and have a National Office in Wellington, and local offices across the country with staff and volunteers who help people live well with diabetes.
Their Mission: Lead, champion and advocate for change to reduce the incidence of diabetes, improve diabetes health care, and empower those affected by or at risk of diabetes to lead healthy, active lives.
They strive to achieve this via their services, programmes and resources. From in-person support, newly diagnosed packs for children living with type 1 diabetes, to their free help-line. They aim to be there for all those living with or affected by diabetes throughout their journey.
The difference your gift could make:
*$150 could help purchase a Brave Bear Pack for a child (4-10yrs old) living with type 1 diabetes.
*$180 could help purchase a Newly Diagnosed pack for children (under 16yrs old) diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
