City Hall to be lit up red for FASD Awareness Month

Lethbridge City Hall will be lit up red for the rest of the week as part of FASD Awareness Month.

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder is a disability that impacts the brain and body of those who were exposed to alcohol during fetal development.

According to the Alberta government, an estimated four per cent of Canadians have FASD. This means that around 174,000 Albertans have the developmental disability.

The Alberta government also announced a cash infusion of close to three million dollars to increase wages of front line workers in the province.

Officials say the funding will also help to support those with FASD or Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.
