CABEI contributes to improving the quality of life of Nicaraguan children and youth with diabetes
Managua, July 7th, 2022.- A total of 50 children and young people with diabetes will be able to improve their quality of life by receiving a periodic replacement kit that will enable them to monitor their blood glucose levels, thanks to a US$5,000 donation made by the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) to the Nicaraguan Association of Parents of Diabetic Children and Youth (APNJDN).
With self-monitoring, they will be able to know their blood sugar levels, keep records and according to this, make timely consultations and adjustments in their treatment, whether in diet, physical activity or medication, if required.
"We are pleased to make this solidarity contribution to the Association of Parents organized to ensure the welfare of Nicaraguan children and young people with this chronic condition, so that they can have products that allow them to self-monitor their health and thereby improve their quality of life," said CABEI Executive President, Dr. Dante Mossi.
During the distribution of kits to beneficiaries, held recently in the auditorium of the Manuel de Jesús Rivera "La Mascota" Children's Hospital, the President of the APNJDN, Aura Cuadra, presented an award to the multilateral organization and said: "We are very grateful for the solidarity and sustained support provided by CABEI over the last eight years with more than US$30,000 for the care of our children and young people."
This initiative is part of CABEI's Environmental and Social Policy, which seeks to strengthen its commitment and that of its collaborators to the environment and the communities in which it operates through the Corporate Environmental and Social Responsibility System (SASC).
