Save a baby, help a mum.
Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) is a condition that severely affects many individuals, a consequence of a mother drinking alcohol whilst pregnant. Just under 10,000 people in Medway are thought to have FASD, yet there is only one doctor in the U.K. that specialises in this debilitating condition. The average life expectancy for a person in this country is 84, but for someone with FASD it is 34 years old. They are also more likely to go to prison because of the issues this condition causes and the fact that many cases go undiagnosed, with a waiting list of two years, so they do not get the support they need.
Unfortunately, there is no cure but with help people with FASD can be supported. We are hoping to be able to reduce the stigma associated with this. How are we going to do this? Well, we are holding a quiz night to raise funds for this charity, as well as doing a sponsored walk and creating a video, leaflets and radio advert for this charity and their monthly comedy gala.
We hope you can help us by donating to this worthy cause. Thank you!
