IDYA present the €10,000 cheque to Build4Life along with Nicholas O'Halloran, his mother and a CF nurse from Cork University Hospital Staff
Last week members of the Irish Deaf Youth Association of Ireland presented the Build4life Kids charity for Cystic Fibrosis with a cheque for €10,000. The cheque was presented at Cork University Hospital last week, and will go towards much needed Isolation Units for paediatric care of CF patients.
The Irish Deaf Youth Association, a registered charity, became aware of Cystic Fibrosis through one of its members Nicholas O'Halloran who has CF. He approached the IDYA to organise some fundraising events some months ago, and although the charity itself was struggling, when they were made aware of the lack of facilities to treat CF, they decided wanted to make a real difference.
