Interplast – How your fundraising will help…
For Interplast, the funds raised by Eureka Climb participants allows teams of medical professionals to provide free reconstructive surgery for those who would otherwise not be able to afford these services. Their work significantly improves the quality of life for people who are disabled as a result of congenital or acquired medical conditions including cleft lip and palate, burn scar contractures, tumors and growths. It has also allowed Interplast to build the capacity of our neighbouring countries by assisting in the training of the next generation of surgical leaders. By supporting, mentoring and building their knowledge, local medical personnel across the Asia Pacific region will be able to perform these procedures independently.
- $100 could provide dressings and surgical supplies to treat a patient after their burns surgery

Whitelion – How your fundraising will help…
The young people Whitelion works with are among the most disadvantaged members of our community who often come from extremely abusive families, including sexual, drug or alcohol abuse. Whitelion helps young people find the courage to seek a better future and aims to break the cycle of substance abuse, criminal activity and incarceration by providing young people at risk with opportunities to make links and build relationships with the community with education and employment opportunities.
