Humpty Dumpty Foundation

We would all like to believe that our hospitals have the necessary equipment they need to look after our children in an emergency, but put simply, they don’t.

Humpty’s vision is to ensure that hospitals and health service centres across Australia have the right medical equipment they need to save the lives of sick and injured children. By purchasing medical equipment off Humpty’s Wish List, donors are helping to give medical teams the best possible chance of averting a tragedy.

Founded by Executive Chairman Paul Francis, Humpty has been providing support for children’s services since 1996. Humpty buys essential and often life-saving medical equipment for Neonatal Units (Newborn Care) and Paediatric Wards (toddlers and children to 16 years) in hospitals and health service centres across Australia.

Humpty also provides funding for special projects including the magical Fairy Gardens (which encourages healing), paediatric fellowships (for graduate doctor training), weekly visits by the ‘Clown Doctors’ and the establishment of The Humpty Dumpty Paediatric Gait Analysis Laboratory at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.

Over the years, Humpty’s corporate and community support has grown and we now provide equipment to 212 hospitals around Australia.
