Our MissionWe believe that no-one should die because they can’t afford or access a simple drug like insulin. We collect unwanted insulin and diabetes supplies and connect them with people across the world who need them most. Our mission is to save lives and help those with diabetes survive and thrive in their communities.”
Our StoryInsulin for Life began in Melbourne, Australia way back in 1984. Our founder, Ron Raab OAM read a story about a young girl in Africa with Type 1 diabetes whose only wish was to live until Christmas. She was able to obtain a small amount insulin, lived until Christmas but sadly passed away soon afterwards. Ron, who has had Type 1 diabetes since the age of six, realised this could have been his fate had he lived in another part of the world.
Going GlobalThe IFL program now operates across the world and continues to expand. It is a network of independent not-for-profit affiliate centres which collect and distribute insulin and supplies. Every year over $1 million worth of unwanted supplies are sent-worldwide in response to emergency requests and as part of ongoing sustainable programs. Find out more about Where We Work.
