She is the first person ever to be diagnosed and treated for Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) in Laos. In 2016, Pasil arrived at hospital in a diabetic coma after a two-day journey in the back of a pickup truck.
Working with local health authorities, A4D supported Pasil in her recovery and has since given her with free insulin and blood testing equipment. She is now a strong and healthy 15-year-old. A4D supports over 45 young people in Laos with ongoing Type 1 Diabetescare who would not be alive without the work that we do.
