Ataxia is a genetic and progressive disorder of the central nervous system which usually manifests itself in children between the ages of two and sixteen years . Because of the genetic factor young parents could have several children before the condition manifests itself in one or more of the children. The general symptoms are clumsiness, difficulties with balance, lack of co-ordination and, in time, a slurring of speech. More details can be found here About Friedreich’s Ataxia
We are approached to help AFI to expand their online presence as well as to allow them to take donations through the website. Added to this, there is an additional eCommerce element that their own products can be purchases through the site is so required. Specific donation campaigns can be setup and managed on the website as well as the donors.
A blogging system was also added to the site to allow the organisation to promote their organisation. With each page of the site, it is possible for the website administrators to simply add a donor form to the site so that there are multiple donor points on the site.
Donors can also be managed through a custom CMS that allows the CMS administrators to manage donations, lodgements and donors through their encrypted interface.
The website is fully responsive and uses Googles Mobile First requirements so that the website can be easily utilised across multiple platforms and devices.
The AFI website was launched in October 2021
