A story of honour and commitment since 1974
Established in 1974, the Resources for Children with Diabetes Foundation (Fred)’s initial mission was to provide for the critical needs of Camp Carowanis, Quebec’s camp for diabetic children.
Honouring the commitment to accepting any diabetic child irrespective of the financial situation, the Foundation’s first Board of Directors—a group consisting of doctors and parents, were convinced of the role and importance of Carowanis in the lives of diabetic children and their families. To this day, we continue to honour this commitment and history, regardless of socio-cultural, linguistic or religious background.
Alongside children and families for almost 50 years.
Values focused on action
and mission fulfillment
Collaboration and Integrity
Fred carries out his mission through actions such as:
• Encouraging the creation of bonds (exchange meetings between parents and youth, activities)
• Informing and educating families (meetings, website, symposium)
• Promoting everyday life skills (specialized summer camp)
• Improving quality of life and diabetes management (communication, activities)
to the well-being
to current needs
Over the years, the constant evolution of daily care and the emergence of advanced technologies related to diabetes management, combined with conclusive study findings, have led the Foundation to constantly evolve and adjust to the current needs and realities of children with diabetes and their families.
