Donate – Adiuvare



ADIUVARE – United Diabetic Association Varese is an ODV (Organizzazione Di Volontariato) association founded in 2011.

Adiuvare is a transitive verb (ancient term) and it means to help.

The association is formed by a group of parents of children and adults with diabetes.

People who have decided to dedicate part of their time and energy to take care of the problems related to the disease which, for type 1, is treatable but not curable.

A disease for life.

The focus is mainly on children / young people and their families.

Thanks to donations and fundraising, we guarantee, at the Filippo del Ponte maternal and child hospital in Varese, the presence of:

  • a psychologist, for free psychological support with the aim of supporting families during the growth process of young people, with particular attention to any personal and family discomforts
  • a dietician / nutritionist, for free nutritional support: carbohydrate counting, celiac disease and healthy eating
  • a home nurse, to be of support to the new beginnings of type 1 diabetes and to their families

We organize:
