Associations:

Insulin for Life began in Australia in 1986 by Ron Raab, who had been witness to the dreadful effects of untreated diabetes. He founded the non-profit organization as a means to make use of otherwise unneeded insulin.

Insulin for Life (headquartered in Melbourne, Australia) has been continually growing and now has distribution centers across the world. These include:

  • Diabetes Auckland, Insulin Zum Leben (Austria)
  • Insulin Zum Leben (Germany)
  • Insulin for Life Netherlands
  • Insulin Dependent Diabetes Trust (United Kingdom)

Insulin for Life USA is also tied with many “sister” organizations with respect to continual cooperative agreements.  These would include, but not be limited to:

  • Life for a Child (Australia)
  • HOPE worldwide
  • The Australian Diabetes Council
  • International Diabetes Federation
  • International Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes (ISPAD)
  • AYUDA
  • International Insulin Federation

Volunteers:

We are an organization dependent on the time of our volunteers.  Everyone, in their own way, can make a difference.
