Help us Build a Bus!
On average Aboriginal children suffer from middle ear disease for 32 months of the first five years of life, compared to 3 months for non-Indigenous children. Middle ear disease is treatable and preventable, yet chronic ear disease in Aboriginal children is a pandemic. This affects children's ability to develop language, to achieve in school and to flourish - if you can't hear, you can't learn! Earbus works hard to do our part to change this and we need your help to allow us to reach even more kids in regional and remote WA.
"The idea of Earbus is to take healthcare to Aboriginal people instead of expecting them to negotiate their way through whitefella mainstream services. This model was designed by Aboriginal people, for Aboriginal people"
- Earbus CEO Paul Higginbotham
To help us raise the funds to purchase and fit out a purpose-built clinical bus for the Pilbara region see our Good Company campaign below.
Earbus Foundation has a very small administrative office and the vast majority of funding is spent on providing services directly to children in need. We have TCC (tax concession) and DGR (deductible gift recipient) status through the Australian Taxation Office. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.
Our aim is a generation of children who are physically well, able to hear and learn, with well-paid jobs. Living lives full of potential.
