Story

HCJMRI has been running a charity program (“Sweetlings”) for holistic care of children with type 1 Diabetes for the last eleven years.
Pramod Mormare, 8 years, lost his father recently and his mother abandoned him on being diagnosed with Diabetes, when she realised the financial burden it would pose on her.He was refused admission in local school because of his condition and  was forced to work on the fields in the rain with no footwear. 

Harshada is a 13 month old baby girl who has been recently diagnosed with diabetes and will now need to be on lifelong supply of Insulin and diabetes medicines for her to live a normal life. On top of that her mother has been ostracised by the family and is not being supported by them.

These 2 cases above are just some of the harsh realities that 600 such children face which the team of doctors at Sweetlings has been able to support for the last 11 years. CSR donations have over the recent year having starkly declined as a lot of the funds have been diverted to Corona end uses -the program has already been curtailed from 800 beneficiaries to 500 and now 300. Even these 300 are being given reduced doses of insulin as funds no longer permit full doses .The program will be out of funds by the end of the year and may have to be disbanded

Children's Diabetes is a disorder in which a child's pancreas is incapable of producing the hormone Insulin.  Children need 4-5 injections every day and also need help for other tests and medications on a daily basis. 

We urge you to come forward and donate to this cause, so we can help children in need and help them live a normal life. 

About Sweetlings

Sweetlings is a project that apassionate set of doctors support under the auspices of Jehangir Hospital -but self funded through CSR donations.

The beneficiaries are children from the weakest sections of society (some living in PMC toilets but mostly in similar situations) who are Type one diabetics and completely dependent on insulin and medicines to live a close to normal life.
Support from donors has made and will continue to make a big difference to lives of these children. Many of them stay in remote parts of Maharashtra with poor access to healthcare services.
