Diabetes is a chronic disease and people living with diabetes require an uninterrupted supply of medication and monitoring equipment.
Following the devastating Beirut Blast that took place on August 4, 2020, aggravating the ongoing economic and political crisis, DiaLeb – National Diabetes Organization focused its efforts to ensure those affected received the medication and supplies they require.
One year later, the situation is no easier. The COVID-19 pandemic, the shortage of medication, economic crisis and political instability has escalated, leaving many in dire need of medication.
DiaLeb has successfully helped many patients and has distributed medication supplies for diabetes and other non-communicable diseases. Thanks to donations both monetary and in kind, we have ensured that those in need continue their diabetes management.
This initiative is aligned with DiaLeb’s commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, specifically, SDG 3 (Good Health and Wellbeing), SDG 5 (Gender Equality) and SDG 17 (Partnerships for the Goals).
