Community Grants Program - 2010
SA Community Grant recipients
Australian Kabuki Syndrome Association - Kensington Park
The Australian Kabuki Syndrome Association provides support to children and young adults with the rare and little known condition of Kabuki Syndrome and their family. The Association promotes the awareness of Kabuki Syndrome, a congenital disorder, so that more medical personnel become familiar with the condition thus making an earlier diagnosis for the child. The association also exists to increase public awareness of the condition, which makes for easier movement/acceptance in the community, schools and children's projects.
