As always thank you for your committment and support for our members and friends suffering from this scourge of Asbestos Diseases.My team and I look forward to seeing you at our events.
With deep respect I dedicate this website to the memory of all those unfortunate victims of asbestos-caused diseases, and their families.
Quoting a Kenyan proverb ...
"We do not inherit the earth from our parents, rather we borrow it from our children."
The principal aim of this website is to provide information on asbestos, its risk and to initiate programs to reduce the fourth wave of asbestos diseases which has already begun, and inevitably will become more insidious if exposure to asbestos in public and private buildings, schools and the environment is not abated.
President of the Asbestos Diseases Society,
Robert Vojakovic AM JP BCom
