Humpty Dumpty Foundation

For more than 30 years the Humpty Dumpty Foundation, founded by Paul Francis OAM, Patron Ray Martin AM, has been helping hospitals and health services care for children by providing much needed medical equipment and initiatives that improve health outcomes. Humpty provides a Wish List giving donors complete choice of the kind and location of their support. To date, Humpty has provided medical equipment to paediatric wards, neonatal units, and maternity and emergency departments for around 500 hospitals across Australia.

The Girgensohn Foundation chose to provide funds for the acquisition of an AC 40 Clinical Audiometer for the Nowra Community Health Centre, Audiology. Otoacoustic emission (OAE) assessment is an important part of paediatric audiology ensuring early identification and appropriate referral for ear disease treatment and hearing loss management affecting children.
