As we approach the end of 2023, we have the opportunity to reflect on the incredible year we've had, all thanks to the support of our dedicated community.
Together, you have helped to make a real difference in the lives of the people in Canberra and its surrounding regions by supporting exceptional patient care.
In the past year, because of you, we've had the privilege of funding several significant projects that promise to enhance the health outcomes for patients who find themselves in hospital, while also supporting our healthcare teams. These projects span a wide range, much like our diverse and vibrant community.
The projects you have helped to support have a shared mission: to bring positivity to the lives of individuals and families navigating some of life's most challenging moments.
You have the opportunity to join a compassionate community that plays a crucial role in supporting people in need.
Please consider donating to the Christmas Appeal to be a part of this heartwarming initiative. Read a letter from our CEO, Helen Falla, here.

Together, we are making change
Giraffe Stand-alone Infant Resuscitation System
EVT Digital Play Project
The EVT Digital Play Project has transformed the pediatric patient experience by providing essential tools for distraction and comfort for young patients. This includes Smileyscopes, virtual reality headsets that ease the stress of medical procedures through distraction, Storytime Pods for engaging, educational content, a mobile projector system to bring joy to waiting rooms, and BUZZY, a pain-relief device.
These innovations make a real difference, helping children and young people cope with medical procedures and hospital stays.
The impact of these tools extends for up to 10 years, ensuring a decade of support for our young patients. This initiative is about improving their healthcare journey and making it as positive as possible.
