Dulce de Amor

Diabetes and Obesity are two life threatening diseases that know no age, economic, or social status.

Concern International has joined forces with a group of dedicated doctors, medical professionals and parents that are seeking to improve the health of the young people that are afflicted by these diseases in Agua Prieta, Mexico.  The percentage of children affected by these two life threatening diseases is significantly higher in Agua Prieta, than other areas of Mexico and the United States.   The goal of this partnership is to improve the health and wellbeing of the affected children through education, training, medical care - monitoring and testing of their blood sugar levels, and persistence, in doing so we seek to make the lives of these children more tolerable and productive. 

The team in Mexico will be providing the education, training and support, that the children need to overcome these debilitating long term conditions.  Without adequate glucose monitoring equipment the children and parents can only guess at the amount of insulin that the children need per dose, which leads to dangerous fluctuations in their blood sugar and even life threatening situations.  Simple glucose monitoring equipment is effective and easy to use but is well out of reach for these children and families, due to the economic conditions in the area. 

Concern International is seeking to provide each child with their own glucose monitoring equipment and supplies, to be used in conjunction with the medical team in Agua Prieta.  We also seek to provide each child with proper shoes and socks, since foot care is an essential element of diabetic education and care.  In providing these items we seek to help the children and their families care for themselves and to provide opportunity to introduce the children and their families to the Light of Jesus Christ.
