The Clough Foundation is pleased to announce it has renewed its partnership with ChildFund.
Clough CEO and Clough Foundation Director Peter Bennett said: “Clough and The Clough Foundation has been working with ChildFund since 2014. We are incredibly proud that through this partnership we are staying true to our principles and enriching the lives of people in the communities where we work and live. In this case, the children and their families in Papua New Guinea.”
ChildFund CEO, Margaret Sheehan said: “We are very pleased to continue working alongside the Clough Foundation in PNG. As one of our key partners, the support of Clough has already enabled us to significantly upgrade village clinics and improve the health outcomes of rural communities in Kairuku District.
“Now we are facing a new global health crisis – COVID-19 – so our partnership with Clough will allow ChildFund to implement programs that help prevent the spread of disease, while continuing to provide rural communities with healthcare services that save lives. The Clough Foundation was the first organisation to support our COVID-19 appeal. They are a critical partner to ensure we mitigate the clear and present risks in the country.
“On behalf of the team at ChildFund PNG, and the children and communities with whom we work, we want to thank the Clough Foundation for their ongoing commitment and generosity.”
ChildFund Australia is an independent and non-religious international development organisation that works to reduce poverty for children in many of the world’s most disadvantaged communities.
It is a member of the ChildFund Alliance – one of the world’s oldest and most experienced child-focused development agencies. With a global network of 11 organisations, the ChildFund Alliance assists more than 13 million children and families in over 60 countries.
To date, the Clough Foundation has supported the construction of a much-needed Maternal Child Health clinic in Kairuku District, Papua New Guinea. In addition to resourcing the clinic with essential medical equipment and supplies, Clough is supporting ChildFund’s vaccination outreach clinics, and training programs for Village Health Volunteers. These vital health initiatives provide life-saving support in remote communities, which would otherwise have no nearby access to healthcare services.
