Supporting JDRF: finding a cure for T1D

We are very proud and humble to be given the opportunity to support JDRF Australia​ and contribute towards finding a cure for type 1 diabetes. Thank you for lettings us be part of your Galas in Perth, Sydney and Melbourne!

The cause: Type 1 diabetes

More than 120,000 Australians and their families are facing the daily burden of living with type 1 diabetes (T1D).

T1D is caused by the immune system mistakenly turning on itself, destroying cells within the pancreas that produce insulin. Without insulin, the body literally starves as it cannot process food. People with T1D must receive a constant supply of insulin to stay alive, as well as endure painful fingerpricks around 6-8 times a day to help keep their blood glucose levels under control.

There is no way to prevent T1D, and currently no cure.

JDRF is the leading global organisation funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Our mission is to accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications.

We collaborate with academic institutions, policymakers, and corporate and industry partners to develop and deliver a pipeline of innovative therapies to people living with T1D.

JDRF supported 44 research projects in Australia alone last year, each a potential pathway to our vision of a world without type 1 diabetes.

What’s on in Cuba?

International Festival of “La Trova” Pepe Sánchez, Santiago de Cuba. 
If you like the sounds of traditional Cuban folk music, you’ll want to hit this festival. Buena Vista Social Club member Eliades Ochoa organized a recent festival. Local Santiagueros are the heart of the festival, but singers and groups come from the entire island and throughout Latin America. Mid-March.

Celebration of Classic Cars, Havana. 
Recognising the appeal of its huge fleet of classic American cars, Cuba has organized a week-long celebration of these Detroit dinosaurs. Events include lectures, mechanical workshops, and parades. Owners from other countries are encouraged to bring their wheels to Cuba, and a caravan from Havana to another colonial city is usually orchestrated. Mid-March.

Call for the drum party March 5-11, Havana.
The National Popular Music Center will convene the XVI Edition of the International Festival and Drum Festival “Guillermo Barreto in Memoriam”, which will be held in Havana from March 5 to 11, 2018 and will have as main headquarters the Teatro Mella, Karl Marx Theater, Avenida Room, La Rosada de La Tropical, Mella Theater Gardens and Hotel Palco, among others.
