Insight currently supports three sustainable projects. Most of Insight's fundraising goes towards these projects.
Maranatha Health, Uganda
Based in Kamwenge, Uganda, Maranatha Health was founded by Adelaide graduate Michael Findlay and his wife Kim, a health science graduate with an interest in public health. They have migrated to Uganda to assist in the building and establishment of the clinic, as well as the development of community programs that focus on the social determinants of health, including education and sanitation. We commit $4000 per year to their cause.
Cambodia World Family Project
Insight commenced support of the Cambodia World Family Project, a dental initiative, in 2009 through the introduction of the Amazing Raise to the Insight events calendar. The CWF is run by a Perth-based dentist who provides a dental service to institutionalised and disadvantaged children, such as orphans and those with HIV. Since 2013, we also select BDS and BOH students to join Dr Ogle in volunteering in Cambodia.
Kompiam, Papua New Guinea
Insight has a longstanding association with Kompiam, Papua New Guinea through Dr David Mills, the superintendent of the medical practice. Sixth year students are currently able to spend four weeks on elective at the practice. Insight maintains a $4000 per year contribution to Kompiam. The current money is being used to fund the construction of accommodation and other facilities at the Lapalama outposting, to further expand the reach of the practice.
