Stories of the Australian Chinese Medical Association

With the Covid 19 pandemic, we can no longer take for granted a lot of things such as socialising, staying together and sharing. Friend or families are forced apart. As such Way In Network and ACMA Charitable Trust are organising this event to reconnect our members and friends, promote wellness, eat well, have fun and raise funds for worthy causes.


Key Speaker: Dr David Mann PhD, dietitian, who will give us tips for how to enhance health, beauty, and boost our immune system through good diet.

Charities

Funds raised that night will be donated to ACMA Charitable Trust, and with all proceeds received by the Trust that night to go to below charitable organisation:

  1. MITO Foundation – a research organisation of Mitochondrial Disease for prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cures for such disease, as well as support to patients and carers.
  2. Counterpoint Multicultural Services – this Sydney city centric organisation has a long history of supporting seniors from multi-cultural backgrounds including Chinese as a significant portion. They have a centre in Redfern for activities and support to seniors mostly under poverty. With recent Covid 19 issue, seniors are more confined physically and in demand of more necessities too. We hope to fund Counterpoint for a project to visits of such seniors by their volunteers and workers with gifts of necessities.

Last week, the Australian Chinese Medical Association hosted our 29th Annual Dinner. We were initially worried as the day was cold and wet, but as evening came, the rain and winds receded, setting the scene for an amazing night. The backdrop? The trifecta of the breath-taking Sydney Harbour, the magnificent Harbour Bridge and the iconic Opera House… need I say more?!
