Spare a Rose

Dear Friends of #dedoc°

In light of the war against Ukraine, in support of People with Diabetes of Ukraine, and to provide guidance to members of the global diabetes community wanting to help, Spare a Rose is launching Spare a Rose for Ukraine!

Spare a Rose for Ukraine will run throughout March, with all donations earmarked to support people with diabetes in and out of Ukraine. Donations will be directed to Insulin for Life, a registered charity with over two decades of experience providing insulin and diabetes supplies to under-resourced countries, and responding to emergencies. Their international consortium and network in Europe, with partners in Ukraine and neighboring countries, has supplies ready to go if and when and where needed.

If you want to help, please consider donating to Spare a Rose for Ukraine!

Spare a Rose for Ukraine has been endorsed by #dedoc° as well as the International Diabetes Federation European Region (IDF Europe).


We call upon corporate partners to match community donations to Spare a Rose for Ukraine!

As a first corporate partner to respond to this call, Medtronic has pledged to match community donations up to 50.000 USD. Thank you!

Diabeloop has pledged 15,- EUR per employee, totaling 3.000,- EUR in matching grants. Thank you! 

We hope others will follow their lead in the days to come.
