FULLERTON HEALTH, in its commitment to improve the lives of communities in which it operates, has donated A$50,000 to the Australian Red Cross Relief and Recovery Fund.
This contribution goes towards assisting efforts to bring relief to residents and neighbourhoods affected by the devasting fires in Australia.
Mr Steven Harvey, managing director of Fullerton Health Australia said, "This humble donation is by far the largest contribution to any fund-raising effort in Fullerton Health Australia's history, and we are very proud that we can support this important appeal.
"The rains in the past few days may have helped, but the devastation from extreme weather is far from over. Our dedicated teams across Australia, many of whom were directly threatened by the fires, are there to help at all times.
"Local fund-raising efforts by our employee groups throughout the country highlight the passion that our employees have for their fellow Australians at their time of need. We stand side by side with our people to help them in any way we can."
Ho Kuen Loon, group chief executive officer of Fullerton Health, said, "We watched the fires burn with deep concern, and we recognise that our colleagues and patients have been affected by this tragedy. Besides the donation, our primary care facilities in Australia continue to care for our patients and work to keep our communities safe. We must do what we can for the communities in which we operate."
Fullerton Health delivers care through over 550 healthcare facilities and a global network of over 10,000 healthcare providers in nine markets across Asia Pacific. In the last month, Fullerton Health, through its partnership with Stop TB, launched a program to screen 150,000 workers across 250 factories in Indonesia for Tuberculosis this year. Tuberculosis is one of the deadliest infectious diseases in the world and is particularly prevalent in Indonesia.
