Adeola Ian Randolph Foundation (A.I.R Foundation)  - March 2013 - BellaNaija032

On Saturday 9th February 2013, Adeola Ian Randolph Foundation (A.I.R), a recently established foundation for Asthma held its first charity fundraiser – A football tournament and fun day or children at the AstroTurf, Ikoyi, Lagos.

The charity fundraiser was held on the 1st anniversary of the death of Adeola Ian Randolph, who passed away following an asthma attack in February 2012. The foundation was setup in his honour, bearing his initials. The event set to be a yearly gathering, was organized by friends of Adeola with the objective of raising money for charity, helping to build awareness of the Asthma condition and raise funds for research, care and equipment.

The event kicked off with opening prayers by Pastor Funmi Harrison of Calvary House and thereafter, Dr Olaleye of Premier Medical Centre spoke on Asthma, its origin, symptoms, who is likely to suffer from it and how to manage the condition. The day was a huge success with 12 teams signing up for the tournament and over 750 spectators in attendance.

A total of N2,999,300 was raised, all profits go to the A.I.R Foundation for Asthma. Money was raised via entry charges, refreshments, sales of merchandise, donations and a hugely patronized raffle draw with prizes including R&R Luxury Skincare Hampers, 3 x Pamper Packages from BarazahiSpa Lekki, Tiffany Amber Shopping Vouchers, Jewels by Ariaba, Dining packages from Paris Deli Victoria Island, Nail spa packages from QM Lounge Lekki, PhunkAfrique Shopping Vouchers, Luxury Valet from Car Spa, Limited Edition Necklace from Tebazile,  Dinner for Two at Façade in Victoria Island, Crystal Candelabras from Pride & Joy Interiors and 3 manicure/pedicure packages from P&J Beauty Lounge Lekki.

About the Adeola Ian Randolph Foundation (A.I.R Foundation) for Asthma
The Adeola Ian Randolph Foundation (A.I.R Foundation) for Asthma was set up in 2013 in memory of Adeola Ian Randolph who passed away on Tuesday 7th February 2012 after suffering a severe asthma attack in his home. He was a healthy, sporty 32 year old who had been living with Asthma for 16 years.
The Randolph family has set up the foundation to raise funds that would be geared towards creating awareness of the condition, fund research into Asthma, buy and donate life-saving equipment to institutions and individuals in need. They aim to become a channel of communication between Asthma sufferers in Nigeria and the Nigerian government and key healthcare professionals/decision makers to ensure that their plight is heard and quality of life is improved.

Mission
To raise enough funds towards;

  • Creating awareness of the condition
  • Educating “sufferers” on how to spot and manage the condition with relevant information and equipment
  • Providing an Asthma hotline that people can call when they require information or emergency advice on Asthma
  • Donating Inhalers, Nebulisers and other equipment to hospitals and patients in need
  • Working towards having specialist Asthma Clinics across the length and breadth of Nigeria
  • Creating mobile workshops that will travel around Nigeria, visiting schools and educating children on the condition, how to spot it and if you have it how to manage it.
  • Implementing a system where hospital spot-checks take place ensuring that asthma equipment is in place, working efficiently and managed round the clock by trained staff
  • Funding Research into Asthma in the hope of one day finding a cure
  • In the absence of proper emergency services in Nigeria, providing fully trained mobile paramedics who can attempt to treat sufferers on location during a crisis

  39. No air

    March 21, 2013 at 7:03 pm

    Missy,yes asthma is pretty serious. think of having air all around you,yet you cant seem to take it in. you get all bug eyed,stressed out and hunched over from just trying to breath. don’t get me started on what will trigger an attack. dust,stress,enclosed spaces,pollen,cold,heat,you cant get excited(tidy better tidy,mscheeww) without getting an attack. your inhaler becomes an extension of you(God forbid U have an attack and ur canister is empty). yes,I would say asthma is serious.

    @missy : asthma is not so terrible and it can be managed once you know what triggers your attack. for my brother his triggers are dust, smoke and ants walking in lines. there are people living with asthma that dont even use inhalers until its serious. it just depends on the type and all u have to do is make sure an inhaler is always handy.

    March 25, 2013 at 10:28 am

    @Missy, Asthma is serious but can be managed. I’m asthmatic but I have learnt to avoid the things that trigger it, have an inhaler in my bag all the time, have an extra with my Mum, have ventolin tabs in my purse for when my airways feel blocked, and when my airways are still blocked with even the use of tabs and inhaler, or I feel like an attack is on the way, I get myself to an hospital to an IV thru the vein, clears instantly. U can help ur Fiancee manage it, learn all the things that trigger his, and have an inhaler with u too, don’t be tempted to inhale it urself though, a niece tried that with mine, and now has issues…… Just have it handy for him. The major things that trigger it are stress, dust, closed in places, rooms without ventilation, cold, heat, smoke and some other things peculiar to individuals, like over excitement, laughter, I’ve had an attack from laughing hard suddenly, and I’ve had an attack from crying and arguing at the same time, some can’t even swim, I manage my swimming, I get into the pool, let the water get to my neck, at first it immediately blocks my breathing, I go up and let it get to my waist, I do that for a couple of times, and I’m good to go, but then take one ventolin tab when I’m done. It’s manageable once u put the right things in place…..
