DiaLeb aims to stop the rise of diabetes and improve the quality of life of diabetes patients through educational awareness and information sharing, ensuring access to quality healthcare and life-saving medication, and promoting a holistic healthcare approach.
As a chronic disease, people living with diabetes require an uninterrupted supply of medication and monitoring equipment.
Following the devastating blast at the Beirut Port on August 4, 2020, and the ongoing economic and political crisis facing Lebanon since October 2019, DiaLeb – National Diabetes Organization focused efforts to ensure those affected receive the medication and supplies they require.
1 year later, the situation has continued to aggravate, with the COVID-19 pandemic, a recent shortage of medication, a plunging Lebanese Pound and escalating political instability. This has left many in dire need of life-altering medication.
DiaLeb has successfully helped many patients and has distributed medication and monitoring supplies to manage diabetes and other non-communicable diseases. Thanks to donations both monetary and in kind, we have ensured that many 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).
