COVID-19 International Partnerships Appeal

HealthServe is reaching out to support communities battling COVID-19 in Australia and overseas to protect and care for healthcare workers as they care for those struggling with the virus.

ICMDA COVID-19 Appeal

Across Africa and Asia, church and mission hospitals are facing waves of patients needing acute medical care. ICMDA can rapidly mobilise with your help, and we need your generosity and partnership.

All Projects Appeal

Many of our Donors are generous and willing to give, but do not necessarily have a particular project they wish to support.

If this is you, this is the place to make your donation. All funds given through all projects will support multiple projects as the Board determines that the finanical assitance is required.

Anguganak, Safe Motherhood Program, PNG

As more women seek the safest option of a healthcare centre birth, this program aims to provide readily available clean water to these centres.

General Fund (Overseas Partnerships)

We seek to help meet health care needs in our neighbouring countries of Asia, the Pacific and Africa where there are scarce health resources, or there is poor access to health facilities. We aim to develop sustainable health programmes that will improve the total health and wellbeing of communities, and build the communities' capacity for meeting its own health needs.

Gerasa Bali

The four main components of our project are support groups, education, outreach, and treatment assistance and referrals. We provide a safe environment in which clients can share their victories and concerns, offer informal counseling, information and education, interact with at risk populations (sex workers, drug users, inmates) as well as AIDS patients in local hospitals and prisons. We build relationships with members of these populations and offer our services to these groups.

Gerasa Bali is also recognized by local government as the lead agent in Bali to support trafficked people.

 

ICMDA Travelling Bursary fund

The ICMDA Travelling Bursary fund of HealthServe Australia is set up to help send representatives of developing countries to attend the 4 yearly ICMDA congress.

ICMDA Leadership Initiative

The ICMDA Leadership in Health and Development Initiative gives the annual Dignity and Right to Health Award to recognise, support and publicize the most outstanding role models and champions acting to stop the global epidemic of HIV.

Intermed Scholarship Project

The Intermed Scholarship Project provides funds to cover part of the cost of the Summer School and/or the 2 week overseas practicum, for Intermed Summer School participants coming from (or going to) AusAID approved countries.

Muko Clinic

This Spring the Muko Project is running a fundraiser to fund its healthworkers continuing work in this remote part of  far south-west of Uganda. 

The clinic was begun as the result of a partnership between a Newcastle Church, Muko Parish and HealthServe Australia.

Please give generously to enable this healthwork to continue amongst some of the poorest people in the world.

PICCSI (Pacific Island Cervical Cancer Screening Initiative)

Healthserve Australia is running a special appeal supporting the PICCSI program as it enters its second year.

The pilot program was very successful in terms of not only treating those at risk of cervical cancer in Fiji, but also unmasking the extent of the issue and the need to re-engage with a wider net, the issues as they are clearly present across the Pacific Islands.

We now have the opportunity to fund this important work amongst our island neighbours.

 

PRIME Project

PRiME Australia (Partnerships in International Medical Education) makes trips to India, PNG and neighbouring countries.

Torch of Love Foundation, Indonesia

Wedweil, South Sudan

Wedweil is a Region of the North West of South Sudan and it has no local Medical facilities. This project is aimed at building a medical facility to begin to meet the healthcare needs of this region.
