Minister Ronaldson has publicised the annual fundraising appeal for the Weary Dunlop Foundation. Honest History is making a modest donation to the appeal.
The Foundation focuses on the prevention and treatment of illnesses affecting veterans and their families. The appeal runs till 24 July and donations can be made through the Foundation’s website.
Other charities assisting veterans include Soldier On, Mates4Mates and the Australian National Veterans Arts Museum. Although the annual budget of the Veterans’ Affairs portfolio stands at $12.1 billion in 2015-16 ($6.5 billion for income support and compensation, $5.5 billion for health care and $88.7 million for commemoration) there still seems to be a need and scope for these organisations.
