End of Year Appeal
The Foundation for Surgery 2023 End of Year Appeal is seeking donations to support the RACS Global Health programs. Communities across the Indo-Pacific Region continue to face the harsh realities of living without access to specialised medical care, particularly in the resource limited settings that RACS Global Health work in. There are children, families, communities, and health professionals who are waiting right now for Visiting Medical Teams to volunteer their time and expertise, and we can’t get them there without your help.

The health status of Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and Maori people is poor in comparison to the rest of the population. The Foundation for Surgery is working to address this by increasing the number of indigenous surgeons in Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand and improving understanding of culturally appropriate treatment through education and advocacy.
Five billion people worldwide do not have access to safe surgical care when needed. In the Indo-Pacific Region, with your help, the global health program addresses the immediate and long-term needs of disadvantaged communities. In Timor Leste for example, we have a bold vision – to eradicate preventable blindness in East Timor. This is a huge task, and we urgently need your help to ensure people in Timor Leste have access to safe surgery and a health system with skilled local specialists.
