SLGA funds two new projects

The Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA) is funding two new FASD projects in Saskatchewan.

The FASD Support Network of Saskatchewan will receive $13,833 to develop print materials and educate and train foster families on the effects of FASD (this is in addition to $68,000 they received from SLGA in November). The Saskatchewan Prevention Institute will receive $12,000 for the creation of a new public awareness campaign about FASD (this is in addition to the $82,000 they received from SLGA in November).

Liquor store bags and till tapes in Saskatchewan display the FASD awareness message: “Drinking alcohol during pregnancy can harm the baby. We have fetal alcohol syndrome in our community – let’s find a solution.”
