A Delhi-based diabetic center announced that it will be providing insulin free of cost for diabetic children who come from economically weaker sections of the society.
Delhi Diabetic Research Center (DDRC) will provide insulin free of cost to 150 poor children suffering from Type 1 diabetes.

"Children with Type 1 diabetes need daily dose of insulin, regular monitoring of glucose level, periodic visits to the doctors and subsequent pathology tests, which becomes a bit unaffordable for the weaker section of the society," said Ashok Jhingan, diabetologist and chairman, DDRC.
All the children provided free insulin are between the age group of 0-18.
"Initially we will provide free insulin to 150 children and slowly shall extend the reach to more children," Jinghan added.
