Support will be provided for people on the ground and will directly help individuals, families and schools, in particular.
Finn's First Steps will be the first beneficiary of the Keith Duffy Foundation, an initiative set up in the hopes of sending a young boy to the US to undergo a life-changing surgery. At the age of one, Finn was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy spastic diplegia, a condition which affects his legs, resulting in the muscles being held constantly tight and rigid.
