Yasir’s Story

At age four, Yasir was rushed to hospital in Karachi, Pakistan where doctors realized he was in Diabetic Ketoacidosis. He was diagnosed with type 1 and, for the next few days stayed in hospital and, along with his parents, learned how to manage his diabetes

Yasir’s family simply couldn’t afford the cost of the insulin and tools he would now need to live with this overwhelming change in his life

Life for a Child was able to step in and supply him with a blood glucose meter, and a regular supply of insulin and test strips. Life for a Child also ensures Yasir is seen every three months to check growth and development and receive diabetes education.

Without support from Life for a Child, it is likely that Yasir would not have survived far beyond his diagnosis.
