CanRevive’s program supporting Chinese-Australian cancer patients and their families by providing information and emotional support to cater for their cultural and linguistic needs, has been announced as a recipient of the latest round of Transurban’s Community Grant program to support local not-for-profit groups.
Laura Penfold presented the $3,000 grant to CanRevive President Ella Lee and Vice President Eric Yeung CanRevive will use the grant to purchase audio equipment to enable them to run Chinese public information sessions for non English speaking cancer patients in Western Sydney.
“No one should face cancer alone.” Mrs Lee said CanRevive’s plan is to collaborate with more hospitals and organisations to extend our services to areas not presently covered.
Group General Manager NSW Andrew Head said Transurban’s vision is to strengthen communities through transport.
“We believe it is important to support the communities in and around our roads. CanRevive provide an important service and we are delighted to support them,” Mr Head said.
“We are very proud of our grants program, which has provided more than $200,000 to deserving not-for-profit organisations across Australia since November 2013.” Transurban is a motorway operator, whose roads include the Eastern Distributor, Cross City Tunnel and part ownership of M5 South West and WestLink M7.
