'LIFE FOR A CHILD' Diabetes Documentary Accepted Into Competition at New York's Prestigious Tribeca Film Festival
Date:4/22/2008

and a historic documentary on Mother Teresa.

LIFE FOR A CHILD was filmed in October 2007 in bustling Kathmandu and the rugged mountainous Sindhuli region of Nepal, following the stories of three children and the sacrifices of their families:
-- 11-year old Anupa, who, once each month, walks four hours through

treacherous mountain passes simply to reach the bus that will take her

to the diabetes clinic in the capital city of Kathmandu for treatment

and blood sugar testing

-- 16-year old Ashok, who dreams of becoming a teacher but struggles to

balance his studies and work in the fields with insulin treatment

-- 3-year old Angi, diagnosed with diabetes at just 18 months old, whose

family moved to the city to stay close to the hospital, the only place

they can receive care. "Our son is most important thing in the world to

us," says his mother.

The film supports the landmark 2006 UN Resolution on Diabetes, which for the first time recognizes a non-infectious disease as serious a global health threat as infectious epidemics such as HIV/AIDS.

"This LIFE FOR A CHILD film is a testament to our belief that all children have the right to participate fully in all the experiences of childhood and adolescence, whether they have a chronic disease such as diabetes or not, and wherever they live in the world. All children with diabetes have the right to at least a minimum standard that can ensure survival," said Dr. Martin Silink, President of the International Diabetes Federation. "Until the healthcare systems of many developing countries are able to put in place effective systems to ensure an affordable supply of diabetes medication and care, children with diabetes will continue to die without the support of initiatives like IDF's Life for a Child Program."

"As the world's largest charitable funder and advocate of research to find a cure for type 1 diabetes, we at JDRF
