"Oxfam works to reduce poverty and fight injustice around the world through long-term projects,
campaigning for change, responding to natural disasters and conflicts, and raising public awareness about the causes of poverty.
We work with poor communities on simple, smart solutions to tough humanitarian problems — helping people get enough food to eat,
access clean water and basic sanitation, enjoy better health, earn an income, be better prepared for disasters,
enjoy their basic human rights and have a say in decisions that affect their lives.
We empower people to take control,
become self-reliant and create positive, lasting change in their lives."
Each year, the Royal Children’s Hospital cares for more than 37,000 children from all over Queensland, northern New South Wales and beyond.
Through the support of the community, the Children’s Hospital Foundation works wonders for sick kids by investing in groundbreaking
research leading to faster diagnoses, better treatments and ultimately cures.
Our team of 500 friendly volunteers help deliver a patient care program which provides practical support to staff, sick kids and their
families. Volunteers provide friendly information services, time-out for parents through playing with kids on the wards, and assist in
clinical areas including operating theatres.
The Foundation also funds the Wonder Factory – a specially designed entertainment centre boasting game consoles galore,
arts and crafts capers, an amazing book bunker...and so much more. It's a time and space in which our young patients can escape
the demands of hospital routine and get back to what kids should be doing...playing, laughing and just being kids.
