Supporting our community
As well as sitting on external investment committees for a number of not-for-profits, every year we select a new community organisation to support – by a process of staff nomination. Over the years we have made positive contributions to a variety of organisations that are important to us, including: Scope, UNHCR, Monash Health Foundation, Asylum Seeker Resource Centre and Berry Street.
John Fawcett Foundation
This year the recipient of our support is The John Fawcett Foundation (JFF), a humanitarian not-for-profit organisation which assists needy people in Indonesia, particularly in the field of sight restoration and blindness prevention. With our support they carried out a two-day village program in the village of Sidan, Gianyar, Bali.
Program outcomes included:
- Screening adults – checking eyesight, refraction – 244
- Screening primary school children – 285
- Glasses distributed (adults & children) – 168
- Eye medicines distributed – 80
- Cataract surgeries (adult) – 4
