and raised $2847 for Projects in Africa.

Well Done Team, and congratulations in finishing the race!

We had a team of five - Zoe, Michael, John, Katherine and Santino and we all completed the race - 14kms - mostly uphill! Zoe was the vanguard runner completing the course in a lightning fast 1 hr 35min, the rest of us managing the course in a somewhat more measured way - between 2 hrs 3mins and 2 hrs 45mins. However, we raised a wonderful $2,847 for Healthserve Projects.

Thank you for all those who donated - you continue to make a wonderful contribution to the healthcare in Africa! Well done running team - a great achievement!

A message from Dr Andrew Wright; Superviser of the Yotkom Project in Uganda

10th July 2017

“We appreciate the fundraising efforts HSA made in June to raise support for our theatre expansion.

It is exciting to think that we will be able to get a theatre bed and lighting.

This will greatly assist us in being able to offer more surgical procedures at Yotkom.

We have two very able doctors wanting to do more but up until now they have been hampered by lack of equipment.

The funds you raised will also help us to pay toward our biochemical analyser for our laboratory, so we can perform liver function

electrolyte and renal function testing.”

Healthserve Event: South Sudan Project –

                                       an evening with Rev Santino Yuot


Last Saturday Evening 13th May Healthserve hosted an evening with Rev Santino Rang Yuot, who has spent the last five months back  in his home region in South Sudan exploring the critical healthcare needs in their area. He met both with the community members and leaders and discussed the initiative of building a Healthcare Clinic in Wedweil, as a regional healthcare clinic in this northern area of South Sudan.


There are many challenges in working in South Sudan but the communities there are in desperate need.


Our work with Santino on this project is ongoing and we hope it will bear fruit in the months to come. Please continue to support Healthserve’s partnerships in Africa; in South Sudan and Uganda.

Healthserve Australia and CMDFA 

“Welcome to 2017 BBQ”

Twenty-three people gathered in Dr and Mrs Burke's

residence in Carlingford

on Saturday 4th February for a 

BBQ to celebrate the ongoing work of Healthserve Australia

and CMDFA and launch the year's activities for 2017.

The evening began with a BBQ, and then progressed with a talk from Ben Reardon about his recent time in PNG. Ben and his wife Eleanor, went to PNG for a ten-day tour to survey the current medical practices and needs in rural PNG. We thank him for his powerpoint presentation and explanation of the challenges and problems faced by the PNG people regarding national healthcare. There was a short Q and A that followed and then a wider discussion on the work of Healthserve and CMDFA led by some insightful questions from some of the medical students. We concluded the agenda with a lovely dessert course.
