Idhayangal Charitable Trust (ICT), a partner with Right To Live, is doing yeoman’s service in treating poor children suffering from Type-I Diabetes.
What is Idhayangal Charitable Trust (ICT)?
“Idhayangal” (Hearts in Tamil) is a Charitable Trust formed by Dr. Krishnan Swaminathan, MD, FRCP, and a leading Endocrinologist from Coimbatore. ICT is a 12 A, 80 G & CSR eligible trust for the benefit of underprivileged children suffering from insulin-requiring Type 1 diabetes in India. ICT aims to let no poor child with Type 1 diabetes suffer or die for want of funds or support to buy insulins, consumables, insulin pumps, or education.
Such unfortunate children are generally aged between 1-18 years and need lifelong four times insulin injections per day. Sub-optimal diabetes control at a young age leads to end-stage kidney failure, blindness, and loss of life in the early ’20s. However, proper glucose control, regular blood, and urine investigations, close follow-up, and proper insulin treatment will enable such children to need normal healthy lives. Currently, ICT supports close to 300 children from underprivileged families and the numbers are increasing exponentially every month.
