Helping the families & sufferers of Mitochondrial Disease

The Abel Foundation was created to aid the sufferers of Mitochondrial Disease and help their families deal with this life limiting disease. Currently there is no cure.

We run a 24-hour support network via phone, email and text and are on hand to help people when they need support or even just someone to listen and can understand what they go through on a day to day basis.

We are in the process of building a community room for support groups to meet and share their knowledge.

As we grow we aspire to provide onsite counsellors for hospitals. You will be able to apply for financial aid for those needing equipment and respite.

Abel Noakes was the inspiration for founding the charity which is named after him. Born in September 2014, he has been battling this disease all of his young life.

Abel’s parents understand the challenges parents and carers face and set up The Abel Foundation to provide assistance to those dealing with this devastating illness.
