by Robert Burns, BPM Finance Manager

P1010422The recent earthquakes in Nepal galvanised our many supporters to contribute funds to assist the people Nepal. Everyone involved with BPM was truly overwhelmed by the outpourings of generosity and heartfelt support in the weeks and months following this terrible event.

As all our supporters would know- a team of 8 BPM Medics left within days of the first quake to assist as well they could. You can find the full account of their efforts HERE.

One of the core concepts behind BPM is complete transparency in all financial transactions, therefore (having recently delivered another large portion of funds), we thought it an opportune time to update all our supporters on the assistance we’ve given.

We received some AUD $ 28,587.00 in ERF funds from numerous sources, including private and corporate donations and spillover funds from GoFundMe.

The funds were distributed as follows:
