Keep yourself and a diabetic child healthy by reducing a teaspoon of sugar per day
Experts believe that sugar consumption is a major cause of obesity and many chronic diseases, such as diabetes. Sugar consumption increases the risk of obesity and heart disease as well. Hence, you can improve your health by start cutting off a teaspoon of sugar per day from your diet and exercising regularly.
Saving a teaspoon of sugar per day will save you approx. ₹100 per month. With this amount saved, you can improve health of a poor child suffering from Type 1 diabetes.
Type 1 diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases in childhood caused by insulin deficiency following destruction of the insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells. Children with Type 1 diabetes need lifelong insulin injections four times a day along with finger pricking for glucoses as well. Without insulin, blood glucose levels continue to rise, and death will occur. Thus, Type 1 diabetes causes enormous strain on children and their families, especially from poor economic backgrounds.
Idhayangal Charitable Trust along with several Rotary Clubs of District 3190 - Rotary Bangalore Spandana, Rotary Bangalore West, Rotary Bangalore Lakeside, Rotary Bangalore Platinum, and Rotary Bangalore Manyata - have embarked on the ambitious mission of improving your health and thereby helping a diabetic child with the money saved from saving a teaspoon of sugar. Gratify your body (by being healthy) and soul (by being a saviour for a poor child).
Reduce One Teaspoon of Sugar per day and Donate ₹100 per month to save a Diabetic Child.
