UFO Members Raises Over $2000 for Dream Trust
"A small effort from each Member can make a big impact to those in need" UFO Foundation
During the Beach Party
at our 2012 Annual Network Meeting
, we raised $1700 for the Dream Trust ... and that amount rose to $2300 thanks to post-meeting donations from Wirtz Shipping (Belgium), Jetwell (Qingdao) and Spark Freight (Australia). This means that we can now pay for a year's supply of insulin for 6 children! Our fundraising table is pictured to the right.
The main object of the Dream Trust
is to help poor children with Type 1 Diabetes. People at large, in India, are not medically insured and have to buy insulin injections, syringes and other accessories required for treatment. Poor families find it difficult to commit a quarter of their monthly income for the medicine and healthcare required by a diabetic child. This is why they try to find short cuts which they wrongly believe will make treatment less expensive.
The Dream Trust was set up after the Founders experienced two shocking incidents of losing diabetic girls. Parents of these girls had stopped giving insulin as they simply could not afford it.
