DAISI is a not for profit, non-government tax-deductible charity registered with the Australian taxation Office, with all donors receiving a tax-deductible receipt.
Up until now, we have received no funding from the Government, with all surgeons and specialists paying their own flights and accommodation and working voluntarily.
As you can imagine, with several trips a year necessary, this represents quite a significant financial burden to all our volunteers.
If you would like to sponsor a specialist physician, surgeon and/or anaesthetist on a future trip to the South Pacific then please contact us.
$700 will cover accommodation
$1,800 will cover flights
$2,500 will cover both flights and accommodation.
Each sponsor will be provided a detailed report on how their money was spent and the life’s affected by their generosity.
The below list includes some of those who have recently sponsored a specialist to volunteer in the South Pacific.
