lifechild "Life for a child" follows the journeys of children with type 1 diabetes amid the verdant mountains and swarming streets of Nepal, one of the world’s poorest countries. The children are supported with life-saving medication and care by IDF’s Life for a Child Program.

The films were followed by a panel discussion which included Dr. Marguerite de Clerck (co-ordinator for diabetes care in a public health programme, Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo) and Dominique Dewandre (coordinator of the IDF Life for a Child Programme, Brussels).
