Who are we (ACT-D)?
We are the parents of the children with type 1 diabetes (T1D) who are getting treated in Advanced Pediatrics Centre (APC) at PGIMER, Chandigarh. We receive support from some health professionals, social workers, volunteers etc. We felt that it is vital to form a voluntary organization/Society/Association for the welfare of these children/adolescents with T1D. We decided to raise and register an association with the name “Association for Children with Type 1 diabetes (ACT for Diabetes)” (ACT-D). The ACT-D shall be a voluntary, not-for-profit organization to serve for all the poor and needy children with T1D irrespective of caste, creed or race in rural, urban and slum areas. The ACT-D plans to work in all the districts in the State of Haryana, Punjab and U.T. Chandigarh and neighbouring states. The association (ACT-D) is registered in the office of Registrar of Firms and Societies, UT, Chandigarh with registration no 4682 since 19th June 2017.
