We are excited to announce the selection of Sarah Akalugo to represent The Nigeria Diabetes Online Community at the forthcoming Pamojan Advocacy conference in South Africa.
This Pamojan advocacy training is organized by T1International – a UK based NGO and Sonia Nabeta Foundation – a US Based non profit with the aim to train Type 1 diabetes Africans across Africa on advocacy, strategies and policies approaches to diabetes care within the continent.
The training will bring together Type 1 from across the continent to build a cohesive force towards creating awareness about diabetes and combating the social stigma associated with living with diabetes in the continent.
Sarah who is a member of The Nigeria Diabetes Online Commmunity and also a community diabetes advocate looks forward to maximizing this opportunity.
We wish Sarah the best and look forward to her representing Nigeria well at the training and translate the knowledge acquired into awareness and advocacy strategies in Nigeria.

Last year our co-founder launched an appeal to sponsor a child living with diabetes get essential medicine and consumables. Thanks to our donors we were able to sponsor 5 children living with diabetes at the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, Sagamu, Ogun State, Nigeria for the year 2018.
With your help we were not just only able to sponsor these kids and ensuring steady supply of insulin throughout the year but we also have insulin dedicated to the children emergency, so no life will be lost as a result of inability to buy insulin at the Children Emergency Room. Steady strips were also made available to avail them the opportunity for continuous monitoring of their blood glucose.
On behalf of Barnabas Michelle, Bello Aminat, Nana Amisu, Daniel Timilehin and Racheal Favor we say a big thank you to those who supported this laudable cause and also anticipate their steady commitment for the coming year. If you wish to be a part of this project kindly send us an email on thengdoc(at)gmail(dot)com. Thank you
