To support World Diabetes Day I got a box from Wataniya on 14th November containing a book with healthy recipes, a light mix from Al Refai with dried fruits and nuts and a jump rope. The idea is to raise awareness and help donate for a fund-raising campaign that aims to provide insulin pumps to kids diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in Kuwait.
To donate send D to 1922 (costs KD 1)
You never know whose life you might end up saving.
In other related news, on Novermber 22nd Dasman Diabetes Institute will be having their World Diabetes Day event that is open for everyone. I attended one of their events once and it was a lot of fun for the kids. They always try to raise awareness and inform people about what’s a healthy snack and what’s not.
Date: 22nd November
Time: 4pm – 9pm
Location: Dasman Diabetes Institute
