Bear Cottage is the only children’s hospice in NSW – a very special place that’s dedicated to caring for children with life-limiting conditions. Families who care for a child with a life-limiting condition often do so around the clock for many years. Our vision is to be as far removed from a hospital environment as possible. We’re set up to provide excellence in paediatric palliative care 24 hours a day, and our affiliation to The Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network means we have access to some of the best medical resources in the world.
CareFlight is dedicated to providing the highest standard of rapid response critical care to the ill and injured. Our specially trained doctors and nurses use helicopters, aeroplanes, medi-jets and road ambulances to bring a hospital level of care to our patients.

The MDA also runs extensive information provision programs with world-wide links to research centers and MDAs around the globe. This information is available at our MD Centre or from our web site The Home of MDA – the first official website in the world dedicated to MD. We have received over 15 million visitors to The Home of MDA since inception. The MDA has always adopted the philosophy demonstrated by that wonderful organisation Médecins Sans Frontières. (Doctors without Borders). After all, if you are a “member of the MD Community” you should be in a position to receive timely information and support within a caring environment regardless of where you live.
One Girl is a charity empowering girls through education. We believe that every girl on the planet has the right to an education. No matter where she is born, how much her family earns, what religion she adheres to, or what her culture says – every girl deserves the opportunity to learn, grow, and be the best she can be. And when you educate a girl, she can change her world. We’re currently working in Sierra Leone and Uganda, and we’re on a mission to educate 1 million girls across Africa.
