Main aim of the charity

To improve the life of Children with Diagnosis Diabetes type 1.

How the employee got involved and why

As my child also has diabetes, I know about the everyday difficulties, worries and insecurities. Not only can´t live children with this diagnosis as carefree as healthy children, it also puts a huge strain on the whole family. For some time now, I have been supporting the association as a member of the board, to accompany the children through their day-to-day life and to create unforgettable moments for them. The reward of looking into children's beaming eyes is priceless.

What work does the employee do for charity

Besides regular training courses and meetings, we organize an annual SUMMER CAMP - THE BIG ANUAL HIGHLIGHT OF THE YEAR. From accommodation and catering to sports and games as well as special activities and training, the summer camp is planned and run by us as an association. With the support of an experienced team of doctors and nurses, the children have the opportunity of a carefree time there. They learn a lot about diabetes and make friends with kids that deal with the same disease. The highlight of the annual camps is the closing party, where the camp counsellors also make a contribution. Sometimes this ends in a ballet performance of "Swan Lake" :-)  For the affected families, this means a little time out to recharge their batteries for the demanding daily routine.
