In May 2018, the Lipusu Patient Assistance Program initiated by Luye Pharma and Beijing Kangmeng Charity Foundation, was launched in Xi'an, China. The program helps cancer patients by offering them the opportunity to receive timely, standardized and effective treatment, reducing patients’ financial burden, lower mortality rate and improve quality of life. The program has since benefited approximately 2000 patients with a total drug value of around RMB 30 million contributed by the company.

The launch ceremony for the Cancer Foundation of China’s Patient Assistance Program took place at Henan Cancer Hospital, one of the program’s adopted hospitals in 2012. Luye Pharma donated RMB 4.35 million worth of Yitaida (a cancer treatment drug) to the Cancer Foundation for the purpose of treating impoverished patients with APL (Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia).

From June to August 2012, Nanjing Luye Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd. supported a breast cancer screening program run by the Cancer Foundation of China in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, where breast cancer is highly prevalent and herdsmen live scattered without sufficient medical resources. As part of the project, more than 10,000 women of different ethnic minorities were screened free of charge by cancer specialists from across the country.

Healthe Care has been providing ongoing support to Sunrise Children’s Association - (www.scai.org.au). An organisation dedicated to building the lives of orphaned children in Nepal. With Healthe Care's financial assistance, Sunrise was able to build a new orphanage. Visiting the orphanage and seeing the assistance provided first hand has in turn been a very rewarding experience for some of our staff.

At Healthe Care we love how our staff get behind various charities and throw themselves into fundraising activities to help those in need. Our hospitals support a variety of different charities in a multitude of different ways across the country – from large well known national campaigns, down to small local charities who are crying out for help.
Just some recent examples include the hosting of ‘Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea’ events, ‘Daffodil Days’ and 'going pink for breast cancer' promotions to raise funds for the Cancer Council. Relay for Life is another popular staff activity where funds have been raised through sponsorship. Movember (supporting mens’ health issues including prostrate cancer and depression) is another initiative hospital staff have participated in, contributing $3000 for the cause. Staff have also fundraised for (among others) the national and local level charities Beyond Blue, The McGrath Foundation, Jet and Amy Foundation (2 children with severe disabilities), Harry's House and The Men's Shed.
