Solidarity Journey

Lowe’s syndrome affects three organs: the eyes, the brain and the kidneys. It is a very rare genetic disease that affects only boys, resulting in physical and intellectual disabilities.

The French Association of Lois Syndrome (ASL) brings together about fifty families of sick children.

The goal is to help families with the syndrome, inform and educate the public, and fund research into how to overcome the disease.

The goal of ASL is to bring this rare disease out of oblivion and with my travels, I just want to talk about it and raise funds.

For this, Fastin has set up a kitty on the Globe Dreamers site, which will be open throughout his journey and everyone can participate. He is scheduled to return to Brittany in mid-August. Fastina wind!
