Educational Resources for the Italian Aged Community - 2010
Recipient: Asthma Foundation of Victoria
In 2010, we were approached by The Chief Execuive officer of the AFoV, Robin Ould, to assist with a project that involved a research of 132 Italian aged retirees living in the northern suburbs. We found it symbolic that the benefactors of the PFB, the Picchi brothers themselves were from Italy and that this gesture would tie in nicely with the communal heritage.
A single donation of $24,500 provides the AFoV with a chance to research and respond with educational assistance for the community for undiagnosed and misdiagnosed asthmatics.
