The Association is currently home to more than 2,000 diabetic children and teenagers in Israel and Palestine, with over 250 volunteers. Ashuja'an is active in 60 cities and villages across Israel And Palestine.

According to the Dubai Health Authority, the UAE is currently ranked 10th highest in the world for prevalence of diabetes, with 19% of the UAE's population suffering from the 'silent pandemic.' The UAE has the highest percentage of its population suffering from the disease in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia ranking 14th. As of this moment, there are 425 million people worldwide living with the chronic condition, including nearly one in five adults in the UAE.

Shadi Kassis, CEO & Founder of Ashuja'an Association said: "In Israel we already have a number of highly successful annual initiatives we run and we will be bringing all of them to the UAE. COVID-19 permitting. Israel is world renowned for its technology and innovation and the Ashuja'an Association is no exception. We are co-founders to a series of technologies focussed on the management of diabetes types 1 and 2. Three of these technology-based products are in development stage and will be opening up to UAE investors. One is a bracelet which changes colour to notify its wearer when their blood sugar levels are too high or too low. The second is an application called d app, which is a cellular, wearable, IOT system configured to monitor, predict and alert before the user develops or experiences diabetic related issues such as seizures, hypoglycaemia and hyperglycaemia plus other related infections and conditions. The third is a one-stop digital clinic."
