Who We Are

Few Words About Us

Many tears have been wiped. Many have been given a shoulder to cry on. Juvenile Diabetes Foundation, or JDF, is a charitable organisation with the primary objective to offer moral support to children, teenagers and youngsters living with type 1 diabetes. A registered trust set up in 1982 by a handful of doctors and parents of insulin-dependent children, it also caters to the physical, psychological, emotional and medical needs of its members. At our clinic in Mumbai, JDF *has also been providing* medical needs at a minimal or no cost to the economically underprivileged. A team of diabetologists, paediatricians, psychiatrists, psychologists, diabetes educators and dietitians work on an honorary basis while the administrative work is, by far, handled by our members who work as volunteers.
Over the past four decades, JDF has stood rock solid like a huge banyan tree, offering shade and succour to its members. Simply said, JDF offers balm for the soul.

Our Founder, our Aba


JDF is helping its members lead fruitful lives. While some of the juvenile diabetics have become doctors, there are other members who have taken up jobs with corporates despite several rejections, others who have branched into business, classical danseuses, and a myriad of other professions and vocations; proving that their abilities are on par with just about anybody else, if not better.
