Camp for children with Type 1 Diabetes in Haiti



For a Haitian child with Type 1 Diabetes, a lack of education is just as dangerous as a lack of insulin. With local partner FHADIMAC, AYUDA volunteers will staff an overnight camp for 50 children living with Type 1 Diabetes in Haiti. Using a peer to peer diabetes education program, campers will learning from other youth living with the same condition. The campers will gain life-saving resources to better manage their own diabetes and live happier, healthier lives.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Diabetes is a chronic condition that requires diabetes education, supplies, care and support to be effectively managed and in order to live a normal life. In a country where 80% of the population lives on less than $2 per day, access to diabetes education and supplies is a challenge for most. AYUDA's partner, FHADIMAC, supports over 50 young people with type 1 diabetes and requires additional support to be able to provide a life-saving diabetes education camping program for this youth group.

How will this project solve this problem?

Using a youth to youth model, AYUDA and local partner organization FHADIMAC, based in the nation's capital Port au Prince, will provide a locally appropriate diabetes education camp program for children with Type 1 diabetes and their families. The camp aims to empower young people with diabetes to better manage their condition and in turn become role models for others living with diabetes in their communities.

Potential Long Term Impact

By providing diabetes education to young people living with type 1 diabetes we aim to enable them to live happier and healthier lives by reducing their hospitalization rates and risk of long term complications due to diabetes. Through promoting youth leadership and civic engagement the project aims to empower new youth leaders, who in turn will support the next generation of children living with diabetes in Haiti.
