Fundraising for the creation of the Association of Young Diabetics of the Algarve, non-profit association.
As there is no association in the Algarve that encourages sharing, debate, and the experience of new experiences, linked to diabetes, this campaign aims to raise funds for the creation of the same.
The association will essentially aim at the opportunity to bring diabetics together, to share experiences, something very important in this disease.
Contacts will be developed with some entities to ensure support in order to develop the proposed activities.
About the author
I am diabetic type 1, administrator of the group goblins, and resident in the Algarve.
I have no experience of association, but I have already been in contact with some entities that will play a very important role in carrying out the actions of the association: health councilor of the Chamber of Portimão, diabetology service of Faro and Portimão, parents of children with diabetes.
With this project I want to promote the debate between diabetics and family members. Encourage meetings between diabetics, as well as activities such as: sports weekends, camping, sports holidays.
I believe that these meetings are very important for the demythification of the disease, so that the children, as well as adults, clarify some doubts and end some myths.
I was one of the people responsible for the petition asking for Freestyle Libre's contribution, and was heard in the Assembly of the Republic by all the parliamentary groups, handing over the petition and was later received by Infarmed, the director of the national diabetes program and Mr Minister of Health.
