Last week we launched our new partnership with the Asthma Foundation WA (AFWA) to help West Australian’s breathe easier.
Whilst our EVOL department have been supporting this worthy cause for some time, this is the brand new partnership between Kleenheat Gas and AFWA. The foundation of that partnership is an initiative whereby Kleenheat will donate $50 to AFWA for every natural gas signup using the promo-code ASTHMAWACARE. The money raised will be used to provide asthma emergency kits containing vital medication to WA schools, kindergartens and childcare centres. This initiative will continue through to October 2015.
Are you familiar with the Asthma Foundation WA? A community based not for profit organisation, they have a history spanning 50 years. The Foundation are dedicated to helping asthma sufferers breathe easier by distributing asthma information to the public and health industry as well as providing education and training and funding vital respiratory research.
Asthma is a condition affecting the air moving in and out of the lungs through branching airways. Sufferers have sensitive airways and these will narrow when exposed to triggers such as cigarette smoke. When the airways are narrowed, Asthma sufferers find it hard to breath. There is no real answer to the cause of Asthma and there is no cure. However with the existence of the Asthma Foundation WA, sufferers can learn to control the condition and funds can be allocated to finding a cure.
