Asthma and Allergies in 2020: Hope and Support During Uncertainty

Asthma and Allergies

Like many organizations, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. The asthma and allergy community has been heavily impacted by several events of 2020:

  • The public health emergency and economic recession caused by the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Loss of health care or delayed access to medications due to the pandemic
  • Record-breaking wildfires and health impacts related to natural disasters and air pollution
  • Widespread upheaval over racial injustices that have once again shined a light on long-standing health disparities

All these emergencies have impacted people with asthma and allergies.

Thanks to your generous support, we’ve listened to and acted on behalf of people with asthma and allergies. We’ve used our expertise and platform to provide public health education. We’ve helped our community stay safe and healthy through these emergencies. We’ve provided around-the-clock emotional, social, and mental health support as people have faced levels of stress and anxiety like never before. We’ve worked with our network of partners, ambassadors, volunteers, and advisors to serve the asthma and allergy community during a period of great uncertainty.

Your year-end gift to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America can continue this work and save lives.

In 2020, you’ve already helped us:

AAFA remains committed to responding to questions, providing emotional support, and calming fears and anxiety among the asthma and allergy community – a group that has been a vulnerable population in all the 2020 crises.

This year has been taxing on AAFA, as it has been for many other organizations serving people affected by these events. We’re so grateful for your steadfast support that has allowed us to respond to the urgent and sudden needs of the asthma and allergy community. We’re also lucky to have partners, supporters, staff, and volunteers who stepped up to meet the challenges of 2020.

Despite all the hurdles this year has thrown at us, we’ve worked together to take action.

We couldn’t have done it without you.

Our work is not finished. People are still struggling with the impact of the pandemic. COVID-19 has made our community more vulnerable than ever. Please give as generously as possible to help us all get through this together.

Consider supporting AAFA’s mission. Your life-saving gifts help reduce the burden of disease for people with asthma and allergies through support, advocacy, education and research.
