The Jenny Souris Foundation’s mission is to help assist cover the financial cost and out of pocket expenses for treatment of those suffering a life-threatening illness.
“The JSF will positively impact people and their families overcome the financial burden created through illness. Our vision over the next 5 years is to help 20,000 Australians receive the best care and treatment needed. We want to create awareness in our community and be a force that gives hope to vulnerable Australians in their most difficult time.”
Maria Souris, JSF Co-Founder
Australia has one of the best health systems in the world. However, despite this, a significant percentage of our community are doing it tough – very tough. Over the last 20 years, health expenditure in Australia has more than doubled (that is, about 103%). During the same period real wage growth for working Australians has increased. This is just one of the factors that contribute to some Australians facing financial pressure when their health is compromised, and they need medical care. The Coronavirus pandemic, job losses and small business failures have made this challenge even more pressing. This is why the Jenny Souris Foundation exists – to give hope. We want you to join in this great mission!
We examine each case on its individual merits and provide targeted funds.
