Dear ACMA members, friends, colleagues and supporters,

It is that time of the year again that ACMA (SA) seeks your support for our annual charity event the ACMA Foundation Charity Dinner on November 4th, 2017.

ACMA (SA) celebrates its coming of age this year, the 25th Anniversary since its establishment. Even from our humble beginnings, it has been the vision of ACMA (SA) to contribute and give back to the community via charitable works. Whether it is in our professional capacities to educate, mentor and finance relevant activities in medicine or to the wider social community, ACMA (SA) has strenuously and tirelessly marched forward and championed the ACMA Foundation to donate and support a wide range of recognised and highly worthy charitable identities and causes.

This year, the Foundation Chairman Dr. Francis Ghan has nominated the recipients of this year’s charitable effort, as detailed in his letter attached.

As President of the association I urge you, members and friends, to attend the function which has been put together after many exhaustive hours of hard work. We only have to see the successful results of the past many years to speak to the quality of the function itself.

Hope to see you all there!

Kindest regards,

Jane

Dr. Jane Zhang MBBS FRANZCOG
