Meet Charbel

Charbel Kozhaya Merhej is a 67 year old male living with type 2 diabetes. As a result of uncontrolled diabetes, doctors decided to amputate his right foot.

Following his surgery, he stayed several months without being able to walk.

As Mr. Merhej was recovering from one of the most extreme risks associated with diabetes, he reached out to DiaLeb asking for help after having seen a television interview for Dr. Jackie Maalouf, founder/president of DiaLeb, on the occasion of World Diabetes Day. As a result, DiaLeb aimed to fundraise money during Christmas time for a prosthetic leg in order to help him walk again.

Thanks to your support, Charbel got his prosthetic leg and is able to walk on both his legs again.
