Humpty Dumpty Foundation and LJ Hooker Foundation Make A Difference to Narromine Hospital and Community Health

Donated a Jaundice Detector valued at $4,780

The Humpty Dumpty Foundation and the LJ Hooker Foundation have made a difference to Narromine Hospital and Community Heath with the donation of a Jaundice Detector valued at $4,780 to Child and Family Health.

All babies are checked for jaundice (yellowing of the skin) on a daily basis.  The Jaundice Detector is used to help clinicians determine the jaundice levels through the skin without harming the baby.  If jaundice is left untreated there is a possibility of cerebral palsy, deafness and/or brain damage.

“Our team at LJ Hooker Nelson Bay specifically wanted some of the funds we raised at our charity dinner to go towards helping families that have been affected by the drought, this is why we chose to purchase the equipment requested by Narromine Hospital and Community Health.  We are proud to be supporting the Humpty Dumpty Foundation to make a tangible difference, not only in the communities in which we live and work, but also those communities in need,’’ said LJ Hooker Nelson Bay Director, Jason Brennan.

Paul Francis OAM, Humpty Dumpty Foundation Founder and Executive Chairman said: “LJ Hooker Foundation’s support of the Humpty Dumpty Foundation and the local communities in which they operate is immeasurable.  Their support of families in Narromine means children have access to the latest medical equipment.  I applaud this contribution to Narromine Hospital and Community Health as it demonstrates LJ Hooker Foundation’s commitment to the wider community”.

About Humpty Dumpty Foundation
Founder and Executive Chairman Paul Francis OAM began fundraising in 1990 and in 1996, the Humpty Dumpty Foundation was officially born.  
 
The Humpty Dumpty Foundation purchases life-saving medical equipment specifically requested by more than 400 hospitals and health services across Australia.  Each piece of medical equipment requested is stringently assessed by Humpty’s medical sub-committee.  

To date, Humpty has raised over $70m and in 2018, Humpty purchased close to 450 pieces of medical equipment for Paediatric Wards, Neonatal Units, Maternity and Emergency Departments.  The Humpty Dumpty Foundation provides equipment for approximately 20,000 children (0- 18 years) who are in hospital on any given day.  On average in Australia, 1 in 5 babies will need medical intervention at birth.
 
In NSW, the Humpty Dumpty Foundation is the largest supplier of children’s medical equipment, behind the State Government, and is working hard with the community to ensue other states and the Northern Territory have the equipment they need.  The charity relies heavily on the generosity of corporate and community donors who participate in our fundraising initiatives including the Good Egg Lunch, Balmoral Burn, City2Surf and the Great Humpty Ball.
 
The Humpty Dumpty Foundation has enjoyed long-time support from its Patron, television journalist Ray Martin AM, Olympian Jane Flemming OAM – Ambassador/Board Member and Wallaby great Phil Kearns AM - Ambassador and Founder of the Humpty Dumpty Balmoral Burn.
