Asylum Healthcare

Our Asylum Healthcare Program provides essential medical care, nursing support, medications support and health advocacy to people seeking  asylum. Many people seeking protection in Australia have disrupted or no access to Medicare.  Many people also do not have work rights, do not have income support or are unemployed and rely on charitable organisations.  

Please support us to support vulnerable people maintain access to 

essential medications, pathology, radiology and medical care.

We have launched an urgent appeal as we are overwhelmed with demand and rely exclusively on donations.

Previous Goals

QUT Giving Day

WWG was one of 22 projects who pitched for support through the 2019 QUT Giving Day.  We reached our tipping point target of $10k in 30 hours in order to convert it to $15k! The funds were channelled towards our unfunded and pro bono work. 

Laughter is the Best Medicine

Our inaugural comic relief show Laughter is the Best Medicine raised $36K in one afternoon through a sell-out show, raffles, donations and best of all, a fantastic show with some of Australia’s best comic talent. The funds went to support our unfunded work with people seeking asylum, particularly those who are Medicare ineligible.

Don’t Stand By Campaign

The inequities in the health system that lock people out had an enormous impact on WWG in 2017. We launched our Don’t Stand By Campaign to raise $25K in one month by shining the light on the facts of health inequity and passed our target by raising $28K.

Outcomes

WWG uses a social impact framework to measure outputs and outcomes to improve health and wellbeing and health equity for people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
