Volunteers needed for the Hong Kong Juvenile Diabetes Association

Requested by

Hong Kong Juvenile Diabetes Association

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

The Hong Kong Juvenile Diabetes Association (HKJDA) has been helping children with diabetes and their families since 2001.

Our efforts centre on providing support to families, educational, emotional, financial, informational, and peer networking. We also raise awareness amongst the medical community about this disease, as well as educating the general public. We are the only charity in Hong Kong that provides these vital services to this needy population.

Diabetes is a chronic illness, but if managed well, the patient can lead a long, healthy, happy, and productive life.

It is our wish at HKJDA that we can help bring this goal into reality through our educational efforts within the community.

HKJDA serves over 400 members (mainly children and teenagers) with diabetes and also their family members. We provide subsidies to low-income families to purchase medical supplies, and we organize differentmactivities like outings, camp, Christmas parties, cooking classes, etc. for members each year.
