Community fundraising is vital for a specialist hospital like the Eye and Ear. We are very privileged to have the support of two wonderful Chinese community groups — the Lions Club of Melbourne Chinese and the Charity and Multi Art Association.

Both organisations raised almost $15,000 to purchase new and dedicated equipment for our Emergency Department, including a highly specialised binocular visual aid which allows our ear, nose and throat surgeons to see into narrow cavities. They also funded a state-of-the-art examination bed for our new Emergency Department.

“We are most grateful for their support,” said Ramil Tranquilino, Nurse Unit Manager of the Emergency Department.
