Youth With Diabetes

Patient Leader

Youth With Diabetes is a registered non-profit organisation that aims to improve the lives of Southern African youth living with diabetes. We do this by running weekend diabetes camps all across South Africa and also in Namibia and Botswana. These camps help children and teenagers realise they are not the only youth with their condition, which helps combat feelings of isolation and difference. Our camps also teach good diabetes management techniques in a fun and interactive way. Youth With Diabetes also hosts support groups for youth and their families.
