The aims of the Asthma Education Charitable Trust (The Trust) are to support Asthma New Zealand Inc.(Asthma NZ) and from time to time, various research organisations, towards providing help and assistance to those in the community suffering with asthma.
It is important that those with asthma get up-todate, modern education and support, which when encompassed in their own lives will help them lead as normal a lifestyle as possible.
The Trust has continued to support The Auckland Asthma Society Inc. throughout the year, as and when the need arose, on request.
With the finalisation and merger of Asthma New Zealand – The Lung Association Inc. and The Auckland Asthma Society Inc., the Trust takes over ownership of the Asthma Centre at 581 Mt Eden Road, with Asthma New Zealand Inc. becoming lead tenants.
Generally, the Trust operates conservatively avoiding any unnecessary risk. The Trust works with the ASB Bank, Wealth Management Portfolio Series Division, to ensure that the investment portfolio maximises its returns. This year The Trust’s funds have grown steadily and remain in a healthy position, relying on funds earned and where appropriate generous

Asthma NZ join New Zealand and sit with a heavy heart in utter disbelief at the tragedy of Friday afternoon. No words are sufficient to describe the emotions New Zealand shares at this horrible time in our history.
For the love and respect of the 50 Families that come to terms with their great loss, we pray that New Zealand unites and moves forward as a more compassionate and accepting nation.
May we demonstrate to a world watching what unity and harmony look like.
