Thank You Canberra for Caring and Sharing

Canberra’s health care workers have been overwhelmed by the generosity and support the local community has provided them throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

The Canberra Hospital Foundation’s #CHFCareShare campaign has been so popular it has already received close to 3,700 donations for our healthcare workers at Canberra Health Services.

CHF CEO Helen Falla said the variety of donations came with a clear message: “thank you for keeping us safe”. “Although we are not through this pandemic yet, it’s clear that the Canberra community values highly the nurses, doctors, allied health professionals, security teams, cleaning staff and administrators who are unrelenting in their drive to keep us safe and healthy,” Ms Falla said.

Canberra Hospital Foundation to receive a funding boost

Sick kids at the Centenary Hospital for Women and Children will soon have a reason to smile thanks to the launch of a campaign at Coles to raise funds for leading-edge equipment.

As of today, ACT shoppers can help support the Canberra Hospital Foundation by purchasing a $2 donation card at Coles supermarkets.

The two-week campaign is part of a national initiative known as Curing Homesickness, which brings children’s hospitals from across Australia together to get sick kids home from hospital sooner or make their hospital stay easier.
