Together we raised $130,000
We are stoked to announce the success of a matched funding campaign we ran recently with The Fred Hollows Foundation. Thank you to everyone who donated to help end avoidable blindness and close the gap on Indigenous eye health.
Along with The Fred Hollows Foundation, we can never thank you enough.
So far an amazing $84,000 has been pledged. Yaru Water via the Yaru Foundation committed to matching donations up to $50,000 which means a whopping total of $134,000 has been raised.
The Fred Hollows Foundation said of the campaign,
“Thank you to our incredible partner Yaru Water for getting behind The Fred Hollows Foundation to help close the gap on Indigenous eye health. The campaign was a huge success raising over $130,000 in just a few weeks. This support will help The Foundation continue our sight-restoring work in Australia to ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have access to the eye health services they need, when and where they need them” – Nicola Marshall, National Partnership Manager, The Fred Hollows Foundation.
We are so proud of our partnership with The Fred Hollows Foundation and what this means for the individuals and communities who receive these vital services. But as ever, we couldn’t make these donations without the support of our customers who purchase our water, knowing the difference they are able to make. We extend our thanks to each and every person that purchases Yaru Water or who donated to this particular campaign. Together we really are helping to close the health gap between indigenous and non-indigenous Australians. #morethanwater
