About our charities
What everyone should know about CareFlight …
CareFlight was formed in 1986 to provide a rapid response medical retrieval service in Australia. CareFlight is a key school for trauma specialists and senior registrars in critical care and patient transport. We hold teaching accreditation with the Critical Care Colleges. CareFlight launched CareFlight MediSim, a mobile medical simulation program designed to train emergency service volunteers in rural and remote area in trauma management, in 2011 and has since trained over 500 participants at no cost to them.
CareFlight has treated more than 25,000 patients, many of whom owe their lives to this service. CareFlight’s service is provided free of charge to all patients. It is through your continued generosity that enables CareFlight to deliver this important service to the community.
On behalf of CareFlight, Ku-ring-gai Bushwalkers would like to thank everyone who has supported and contributed in our fund raising efforts. Your generosity has assisted us in raising several thousand dollars for CareFlight, our emergency aero-medical retrieval service.

"Water Matters Campaign 2003/2004"
'Water Matters' In 2003/2004 we joined the campaign to ensure that all people, especially the world's poor, have access to safe water and adequate sanitation. Currently over 1.1 billion people lack access to safe drinking water and 2.4 billion to adequate sanitation.
As our crops fail and our lawns turn brown, we in Australia are very aware of the importance of water. The situation is much worse around the world where some countries do not have access to a safe and secure water supply. Without water, lives are lost, disease is endemic and droughts are even more devastating. Time which could be spent earning a living or going to school is wasted in long searches for even a single jerrycan of water.
Ku-ring-gai Bushwalkers and its members are proud to have given their support and assistance to the 'Water Matters' campaign and to ask you to do all you can to achieve safe water for all the world's poor.
Oxfam Australia is part of a global movement of dedicated people working hard to fight poverty and injustice.
In 2010, Ku-ring-gai Bushwalkers was proud to be able to assist with their fundraising efforts. Click here to see more.
