We are pleased to announce that with the help of your generosity, we have raised nearly $60,000, which meets our requirements to commence shipments of insulin, coupled with NuGen M.D’s needle free injection systems, to Ukraine for type 1 diabetics in urgent need of this life saving medicine.
However, our efforts are far from over. Insulin (even at our significantly reduced pricing) is very expensive.
On average it costs about $1,000USD per month per Type 1 diabetic to stay alive.
According to this recent article, there are about 120,000 type 1 diabetics in Ukraine who rely on insulin to stay alive.
That’s approximately $12 million of insulin required PER MONTH to aid the type 1 diabetics in need of this life saving medicine.
Thankfully, we have sourced insulin at less than half this price and continue to negotiate pricing from other potential suppliers. The more we can buy the better pricing we can get!
$6 million per month is still a staggering number, but I don’t want you to get discouraged.
Instead, GET MOTIVATED. Your donations have been a HUGE part of this early success, but you can still easily share this story—on your social media or to your email database, your local media channels, your whatsapp group, your family, or your co-workers.
It’s quite easy to push that button that says “SHARE”
Be sure to use the hashtag #insulin4ukraine while you are at it.
The outpouring of support from the investor and diabetes communities has been remarkable, and I thank you for your contribution toward this worthwhile initiative. Through your efforts to support diabetics without access to insulin in Ukraine, I have made connections that I would never have dreamed to be possible, giving me even more fuel to keep this fire going.
We would like to extend special thanks to Gwen Preston, newsletter writer and mining news blogger at Resource Maven, and to Brien Lundin, editor of Gold Newsletter and CEO of the New Orleans Investment Conference, who both generously shared this story with their wide readership and have been a huge contribution to the success to date.
We continue to gain steam with additional partnerships as more and more people get behind this incredible outpouring of support for diabetics in Ukraine.
Thank you for your continued support as we tirelessly work to raise $5 million so that we can do our part in providing hope to the diabetics of Ukraine who have lost so much during this war.
