The Kids of Macarthur Health Foundation is dedicated to improving health care provision for every child living in our region.
To do this the Foundation aims to raise, stimulate and advocate for funding of children and adolescent health services and research delivered within the boundaries of the Macarthur region and engaging the Macarthur community (including government, corporations, organizations, residents and businesses) in supporting these priorities.
Kids of Macarthur Health Foundation is a local children’s health charity established to raise funds to purchase paediatric medical equipment to enhance the level of health care offered to local children being treated at Campbelltown and Camden hospitals. Funds also support numerous children’s community health programs. Research is also being conducted to establish preventative programs for children’s health issues specific to Macarthur.
All equipment purchased and programs supported are in addition to government expenditure. In many instances equipment purchased by Kids of Macarthur Health Foundation eliminates the need for parents to transport their sick child outside of the region to receive specialist health care.
By creating opportunities to enhance the quality of life for children in Macarthur, we believe, we are building a brighter future for everyone. Events and activities are hosted by Kids of Macarthur Health Foundation throughout the year as well as local organizations running their own fundraising events with proceeds being donated to support our work.
There is a variety of ways to assist the Foundation in its work – by participating in any of its events or by donation of time or money. Thank you for helping us change and improve the lives of some very special Macarthur residents – our children!
