Income from our clinic is channelled into furthering professional development and education in the area of fertility and Chinese medicine, but a percentage is also put aside every year for charity.
Lotus Outreach Australia is a small but dedicated group who do extraordinary work to combat sex trafficking by finding vulnerable young girls in very poor parts of Cambodia and sponsoring them so they get an education.
Once these girls finish school not only are they themselves “brothel proof” but they can then support and provide role models to the communities they have come from, to help cut the cycle of poverty and trafficking.
Other charities we support
Can Too – one of Sydney’s best known IVF doctors taught himself how to do ocean swimming so he could compete in the Coles fundraiser for this charity. We were proud to be one of his main supporters.
The Wilderness Society – one of our team of acupuncturists trained long and hard for an endurance event to raise funds to protect precious wilderness areas in NSW.
MS Australia – one of our patients has battled both multiple sclerosis and fertility issues. But it hasn’t stopped her participating in the MS walk to raise money for this important cause. We were thrilled to support her heroic efforts. And to support her new pregnancy.
The Cancer Council NSW – having cervical cancer doesn’t stop another of our patients actively funding raising for cancer research. It won’t stop her having babies either if her obvious commitment is anything to go by. She has all our support.
The Lifehouse at RPA – an erstwhile colleague and inspirational doctor has straddled her bike, and entered the Ride to Conquer cancer, raising funds for the Lifehouse at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital which will provide integrated care and support for cancer patients.
