Santos funding for the Asthma Foundation of SA will be used in a range of activities that increase the awareness of asthma in the community, and help people with asthma better manage their condition.
The innovative programs run by Asthma SA will receive $600,000 over three years to increase its capacity to deliver these programs.
The partnership has allowed Asthma SA to develop and distribute 16,000 Asthma Control Packs to parents of children in child care centres, schools, and the general community. Asthma SA has also launched a major public awareness campaign to promote the packs and asthma first aid training.
The Asthma SA funding is part of Santos’ backing of six new initiatives that form the company’s South Australian Community Fund.
