Charity’s $200k win for clients
A CHARITY that stepped in to help clients after the failure of Muscular Dystrophy SA has received a $200,000 grant to help those with neuromuscular conditions.
The Hospital Research Foundation has provided the funding to West Beach-based NDIS provider I Can Jump Puddles so it can support families of children who are newly diagnosed with muscular dystrophy and similar conditions.
Last year the charity took over client services from MDSA after that organisation went into administration after suffering huge losses following a failed home lottery.
I Can Jump Puddles will use part of the $200,000 to support those recently diagnosed with neuromuscular conditions.
THRF chief executive Paul Flynn said he “felt it was our duty to fight for the community”.
