Every March people come together to bring awareness and support to those with Trisomy conditions. While most people have 23 pairs of chromosomes, some have a condition that causes extra partial or full chromosomes in their cells. Those extra chromosomes can cause a range of health problems, learning difficulties as well as delays in physical development. Trisomy Awareness Month, observed in March raises awareness about trisomy conditions and the challenges these conditions may pose to individuals and families,
SOFT Ireland is appealing to the General Public for a small donation to our charity during Trisomy Awareness Month of March 2022 to help us continue our work.
Support Organisation For Trisomy (S.O.F.T.), a national registered charity, is a voluntary group dedicated to providing support, assistance and information to families of children diagnosed and born with Patau’s Syndrome (Trisomy 13) and Edwards’ Syndrome (Trisomy 18).
Support is provided during pre-natal diagnosis, during the child’s life and after the child’s passing.
Fundraising and donations are our main source of income and that is very challenging in these difficult times.
