Action4Diabetics – A4D

Young people with Type 1 diabetes in South-East Asia are suffering and dying due to a lack of access to essential treatment and education. Jerry Gore, a Type 1 diabetic himself, and life-long friend, Charles Toomey, decided to take action after successfully collaborating on a series of successful fundraising activities in Bangkok, 2013. Through working together our co-founders realised that with their unique set of skills they could make a real difference. So they began their mission and founded Action4Diabetics (A4D) in 2015.

Type 1 diabetes is an incurable medical condition which can be effectively managed with the appropriate treatment and support. A4D believes that young people with Type 1 diabetes deserve the same chances in life as anybody else. By supplying the education and free, essential medical supplies, including blood testing equipment and insulin, A4D enable the young people on their programs to live a full and active life. The philanthropic nature of our co-founders means that, unlike many NGO’S and charities, 100% of all donations are spent on vital programs.A4D now supports over 70 young people with Type 1 diabetes in Thailand, Myanmar and Laos with plans to increase this to over 200 by the end of 2017.

Action4Diabetics in 2016: New A4D programmes were initiated in Thailand, specifically in Bangkok, Kanchanaburi, Chiang Mai and Ubon Rachathani, and also in Vientiane, Laos. We raised over USD 60,000 from donations and A4D Challenges in 2016.

Looking to the future: Our aim is to raise USD 130,000 in 2017 to support the planned expansion of activities in Vietnam, Malaysia, Nepal and Cambodia.
