PANNAR marked World Diabetes Day on 14 November by wearing blue.

It is a cause close to our hearts as it is an everyday reality for the Van der Linden family.

Kiara, daughter of Lisa, our payroll co-ordinator was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2013, when she was only eight.

Today she is an 11-year-old ambassador for children with diabetes.

Her sister Nikhita, also pictured, is a proud and passionate supporter of Kiara's mission.

Every year Kiara bakes blue cupcakes and rallies her friends and family to wear blue to raise awareness about diabetes and funds for the The South African Diabetes Association (SADA).
