One Disease is committed to providing scabies and crusted scabies education to health services in remote indigenous communities and urban settings.
The Jared Dunscombe Foundation supported One Disease in their aim to eradicate scabies from remote indigenous communities. Our funds sponsored the community of Birritjimi to screen & treat all children under five for 12 months. Our funds also assisted in the hiring of two new healthy skin nurses to work amongst the 28 communities One Disease’s program was operating in.
In 2014, we raised $20,000 to bring 8-year-old Aze from East Timor to Australia for life-saving heart surgery.
Aze required heart surgery for a congenital disorder where a blood vessel had failed to close off naturally after birth and had severely stunted his growth. Over time, this issue would have led to heart failure if left untreated.
Thanks to the incredible team at Monash Medical Centre, Aze’s surgery was a great success and he was able to return to his family in Timor Leste a healthy and happy little boy with bright outlook for the future.
JDF funded the earthworks, concrete slabs & our team built two new training facilities for Righteous Pups programs. Facility 1 allowed them to commence their new Diabetes Alert Dog Program & Facility 2 will house their At Risk Youth Program.
Righteous Pups aims to raise and train assistance dogs to do a variety of practical tasks for those with mobility issues, and to act as companion dogs for the elderly and socially isolated.
Since 2017, Jared Dunscombe Fund has partnered to support Righteous Pups, a long-standing charity who train assistance and therapy dogs. These pups work alongside children with autism, disabilities and those at psychological risk.
With a legacy that has helped over 5,000 children in the past decade, Righteous Pups expanded their services the support of the Jared Dunscombe Fund. To make this expansion possible the Jared Dunscombe Fund will be assisting with the construction of two new training facilities.
Something magical happens when we bring grieving kids together.
Feel the Magic provides free camps and resources for kids aged 7-17 years who have experienced the death of a parent, guardian or sibling. Support from the Jared Dunscombe Foundation means we will be able to hold a Camp Magic program in Victoria and that 45 Victorian kids will get the opportunity to face, feel and heal with their grief. Our Social Impact Report demonstrates that there was a 12% increase in our ‘campers’ ability to cope through challenging times after attending Camp Magic.
Ronald McDonald House is an independent, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to providing vital programs for families with seriously ill children.
The Jared Dunscombe Foundation is fundraising for an art therapy program in North Fitzroy. The program focuses on the siblings and families of sick children – helping them to deal with the trauma of having an unwell sibling, as well as supporting those kids who are themselves unwell.
As a hybrid of art-making and counselling, art therapy seeks to facilitate positive change, growth, and expression through engagement with art materials in the presence of an art therapist, set in a safe environment.
