We are here, 24/7/365…working to find ways to save the lives of those with diabetes
What We Do
We collect in-date & unneeded insulin, test strips, as well as other diabetes supplies, and ship them to developing countries. They are then distributed, free of charge, to children and adults with diabetes who otherwise would go without these life saving medications.
Each and every donation no matter the size helps us reach our goals for 2015.
Help us reach our goal
2015 Insulin Goal: 55,000
Currently: 31,841 ml
2015 Test Strip Goal: 98,000
What Is Diabetes
Diabetes can occur in many forms; a common feature being high levels of blood glucose, often requiring insulin therapy. In diabetes (type 1 or type 2), the blood contains abnormally high levels of sugar due to the body’s failure to make enough insulin. Without insulin, people can die. With sporadic insulin use, a number of serious “complications” affecting the kidneys, eyes, nervous system, and heart can occur.
IFL USA is dedicated to helping those with diabetes no matter where the location. Our goal is short and simple…to save lives. Hopefully, you will join with us!
Your Help Is Needed
Tropical Storm Erika
You may recall in late August that Tropical Storm Erika devastated the small country of Dominica in the Caribbean. Insulin for Life USA has been contacted by the International Diabetes Federation requesting that we send diabetes support to aid in the rebuilding process. We encourage those who would like to play a role in this emergency support and our ongoing efforts to assist those in need to consider making a donation. You can become a part of our team either by donating insulin, test strips and other diabetes supplies or by making a financial contribution. All gifts to Insulin for Life USA are considered tax deductible by the IRS.
