Working together in our local community. We believe improving people’s lives often happens at the local level, where individuals take action in their own communities.
As members of the Australian community, it is our foremost responsibility to give back to the community we serve. Our company and employees give back through corporate philanthropy.
Alongside our products, services and solutions, our philanthropic efforts consist of financial contributions, third-party medical education and product donations. The Pyjama Foundation was founded in 2004 to give children in foster care the opportunity to change the ection of their lives with learning, life skills, and confidence. Over the past 10 years, the number of children in out-of-home care has risen significantly, with now more than 51,000 children in foster care in Australia. According to The Australian Institute of Family Studies, young children up to 18 years are removed from their original homes when they are unable to live with their families, often due to child abuse, trauma and neglect, resulting in poor health and attachments. The Prism Surgical Philanthropy Program supports The Pyjama Foundation and the wonderful they do through ongoing contributions.
