In October 2015, Chris Wheeler (Partner and Chair of KWM in the Community Board) and Sue Kench (Managing Partner, Australia) hosted Dr Julia Newton-Howes AM (CEO, CARE Australia) and Gail Kelly (CARE Ambassador) at a lunch to mark $1 million in Workplace Giving donations to CARE Australia, and $10 million in donations to our charity partners overall.
KWM staff heard from Julia and Gail about visiting CARE projects in Malawi, Cambodia and, Vanuatu.
CARE Australia has been a pro bono client of KWM for over 20 years, and one of KWM’s Workplace Giving partners since the programme began in 2002. CARE’s long-term recovery and empowerment programs align with our firm’s global charitable goals – in particular CARE’s focus on education, healthcare & skills to help alleviate poverty and improve community welfare.
