There are a lot of people, suffering from type 1 diabetes, in Guatemala. This is a genetic disease, disconnected with eating habits, which cause 5% of all deaths.
The government is not able to provide treatment for all diabetes patients, therefore we are helping them to overcome the disease with insulin treatments. Most of the patients arrive to our clinic in critical condition and need to be hospitalized. We are doing all we can to stabilize and rehabilitate them. At the same time, we are providing the local community with appropriate information, giving lectures on public health.
