About

Established by Dr Sharad Pendsey and his wife after witnessing the tragic and unnecessary deaths of two girls with Type 1 diabetes, the Dream Trust has helped hundreds of individuals living in poverty to access insulin and medical care for free. The Trust also helps to reduce long term complications and provide vocational training and employment.This charity was chosen as Rachel’s youngest son, George, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at 9 years old in October 2010. In 2012, Rachel made a self-funded trip to visit The Dream Trust and said “We are fortunate in the UK to have George's insulin and medication supplied by our health service. In India, many diabetic children from poor families suffer as their parents are sometimes unable to afford the medication that they need. I know the worry and fears of parents of insulin dependent children and hope that we can raise funds in order to help them.”
