Agape Fish Fund supports low-income Vietnamese diabetic patients in California by providing diabetes-appropriate meals and Christian accountability.
Support for Diabetic Vietnamese
Unmanaged diabetes in the Vietnamese community is a potentially life-threatening issue that needs to be addressed. A 2015 study found that about 1 in 17 Vietnamese adults (1 in 15 men and 1 in 20 women) has diabetes. The World Health Organization said that the prevalence of diabetes in Vietnam has almost doubled in the past 10 years, and across the population there is a lack of awareness about diabetes.
When diabetic patients are unaware of how to manage their diabetes, the disease can threaten their lives. There is a dire need for the low-income, diabetic Vietnamese population in California to have practical support in managing their diabetes.
