CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITIES
In April 2018, our founder’s daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at 18 months old. Type 1 diabetes is formerly known as juvenile diabetes, it is a chronic autoimmune condition. If you have Type 1, it means that your pancreas does not produce insulin, which is the hormone that regulates blood sugar. Without insulin, our bodies cannot use the sugar in our bloodstream as energy, causing people to experience Diabetic Ketoacidos or DKA. It requires monitoring of your blood sugar several times and administering multiple insulin injections with a pen, a syringe or a pump.
Thus, the catapult to change it’s aim. Our founder wants to share their experience in raising a Type 1 diabetic child. They know how hard it is to live with Type 1 diabetes. It gives the necessary push to provide advocacy, awareness and support to a research in finding a cure. GRET want to use it's voice to help people with Type 1 diabetes thrive. Standup for diabetes prevention, knowing it’s symptoms before it’s too late and help people living and impacted by it everyday, until a cure is found.
