About the Event
Children First Foundation has been facilitating life-changing, sometimes life-saving surgery for disadvantaged children from developing countries since 1999. Many children around the world cannot access medical care they desperately need. The complex and often multiple surgical procedures required are not available in their home countries. Our program facilitates surgery for children from these countries by bringing them to Australia and providing treatment here. Our retreat in Kilmore, Victoria, is our main base of operations and we work with various surgeons and hospitals all around the country to get these children the surgeries and post-surgical care they need. So far, we have provided almost 500 such treatments for children from 32 countries.
Larissa Reinboth is the Partnerships Development Manager at the Children First Foundation. Larissa came to the non-profit sector after a successful career in consulting and sales, finding it more rewarding to pursue fundraising goals than sales targets.
She loves to work with and for children, and is determined to help facilitate equitable, healthy and successful lives for children all around the world.
