Humpty Dumpty Foundation
The Humpty Dumpty Foundation, a non-profit organisation, was formed in 1996, to purchase vital medical equipment and services for the children of the Royal North Shore Hospital. The Audi Foundation is helping Humpty purchase more medical equipment.
The Humpty Dumpty Foundation is celebrating more than 30 years of helping to save the lives of sick and injured children in hospital.
Humpty’s mission is to raise funds to provide essential and often life-saving children’s medical equipment for hospital and health services in every corner of Australia.
What sets Humpty apart is their unique Wish List model that gives donors complete choice and transparency in their giving.
It is through the partnership with Humpty, that the Audi Foundation can give back to the community and improve health outcomes for children and their families within areas that dealers, employees and clients reside.
In the last five years the Audi Foundation has donated 41 pieces of vital medical equipment to hospitals and health services across Australia.
Having the right medical equipment can make a significant difference to the care children receive and for many the equipment that has been provided by supporters through the Humpty Dumpty Foundation can be lifesaving.
The Humpty Dumpty Foundation adds value to the health system. Humpty bridges the gap between finite health budgets and unmet paediatric medical equipment needs of hospitals and health services.
They respect and respond to diverse needs across the Australian public health system, recognising it is not one-size-fits-all. These needs vary for lots of reasons — including health priorities, the populations they serve, models of care, and geography — and Humpty’s priority is to help them best meet the needs of the communities they serve.
Humpty supporters genuinely want to make a difference to the care of sick and injured children. Together, we do what we do so that health care teams, children and their families have the best possible opportunity to achieve the best possible health outcome.
To date, Humpty has provided medical equipment to paediatric wards, neonatal units, maternity and emergency departments in around 500 hospitals and health services across Australia.
