Diabetes doesn’t stop... even in times of crisis.
People living with diabetes require an uninterrupted supply of medication and monitoring equipment.
On August 4, 2020 a large explosion hit the capital of Beirut, leaving hundreds of people dead, thousands injured and over 300,000 homeless. In response to this disaster, DiaLeb launched and emergency relief initiative entitled Diabetes Relief that aimed to help those affected living with diabetes.
Many of the victims of the Beirut explosion are of older age and suffer from type 2 diabetes and its associated complications. A disruption in their medication treatment - even if for a short period of time- will lead to health complications.
DiaLeb along with a team of volunteers were on the field, the day after the blast, interviewing victims and collecting data to provide the prescribed medication to those who have been affected the most.
We cannot control what happened,
but together we can control diabetes.
Help us help those in need of medication. #DiabetesNeverStops
