Earlier this year, the Macquarie University Medicine Society organised an event titled “Women in Health”. This event was a night of celebration to acknowledge and commemorate multiple talented male and female health professionals, as well as inspire both medical and non-medical students.
Proceeds from this event went towards IIMPACT Australia that supports education of primary school girls in India.
The Macquarie University MD program involves a compulsory international placement to India. For this reason, the program organisers sought a charity organisation that focuses on educating young females in India. Additionally, they wanted to support an organisation with no or minimal overhead or processing costs, so that all the proceeds would go towards the cause. IIMPACT satisfied these requirements, making it the perfect charity to donate towards.
Sunayana Raghuraman, a student at the University and one of the organisers of the event, said “We were so moved by the work of this organisation, that we have intentions of donating towards IIMPACT for future events as well”.
IIMPACT Australia is pleased to confirm that all the funds donated will be applied to the education of girls in India. We are presently supporting 5 Learning Centres, each educating 30 primary school aged girls.
