Diabetes Wellness Suomi Foundation's strategy is to finance projects whose focus is:

  • Diabetes prevention, complications and treatments
  • Causes of diabetes
  • A cure for diabetes

We primarily fund research that has a strong connection to type 1 and type 2 diabetes and that may ultimately benefit diabetes patients. This corresponds to the wishes of our donors and is the purpose of the fundraising foundation. Our ultimate goal is to find a working cure for people with diabetes.
