About Us

Who We Are

We are a non-profit humanitarian organization committed to improving the health and wellbeing of people living in rural communities. Special focus on diabetes.

Saving life for Africa Diabetes foundation was established by a group of highly talented and dedicated professionals from diverse walks of life, who have tasked themselves with the responsibility of taking health care delivery with special focus on diabetes, to rural interiors. This primary interest is based on the alarming rate of death recorded on daily basis, as a result of the lack of awareness, poverty and neglect.

Health issues in Africa have posed Herculean challenges to the continent’s governments and people. Although United Nations Organization through her various agencies such as World Health Organization, UNICEF and UNAID have at various times intervened and have immensely ameliorated some of the traumatic challenges, and maladies of malaria, polio, leprosy and other endemic diseases including HIV/AIDS, statistics show that people living in rural areas and villages in Africa, do not have adequate access to information, drugs and diet on diabetes.

SAVING LIFE FOR AFRICA DIABETES FOUNDATION wants to achieve minimal death in Nigeria and indeed Africa by awareness creation, creating affiliate members in Primary, secondary and tertiary institutions, workers group in churches and mosques, market union group and motor park group all these are geared towards carrying on this message.

In order to reach all Nigerians wherever they live, work, play and pray. The foundation has decided to integrate all the teaching and National hospitals in Nigeria as centers for drug distribution and counseling.

History

How it all began

The foundation is the initiative of Mr. Obi Madubogwu, a Nollywood actor, movie director and producer who went through struggles, near death experience and survival from diabetes.

After his experience, death of colleagues and relative from diabetes, he made a resolution that as long as he lived he would devote his life, time, wealth and energy towards saving life for Africa against diabetes.

We need your help to expand our reach and make an even bigger difference in the lives of the millions of people in remote communities of Nigeria and Africa who are living with diabetes.
