Internationally, JDRF has been involved in every major type 1 diabetes breakthrough of the last four decades.

PFLAG are the parents and friends of gay and lesbian people who are apart of our community, united by the common bond. Someone they love and care for is lesbian or gay.
Gay persons in many communities are affected by discrimination in their pursuit for happiness and in striving to live their lives with openess and dignity.
Homosexuals are not the only ones touched by this discrimination, but also affecting their friends and families. This organisation is about achieving the same rights and opportunities for gay people, to bring understanding and acceptance of diversity to the community.
Our vision is for a community celebrating possibilities and achieving dreams, for communities in which all people exercise choice and are full participants.
