WELCOME TO THE
Filipino Australian Health Workers Association (FAHWA)
WA Charity Licence Number: CC22597
FAHWA is a non profit, incorporated and licensed charitable organisation. Our aims and goals are to:
- give back to the community through our outreach programmes, delivering health promotion educations using our skills as health professionals
- undertake activities such as provision of food and basic necessities to the homeless and other disadvantaged group of people in our community
- promote and foster Filipino and other cultures through dances and music and observance of Filipino and other customs, festivals and ceremonies.
FAHWA is a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC).
HELPING THE HOMELESS
Due to the increasing numbers of homeless people we have decided to help as much as we can by contributing to their immediate welfare when they are sleeping on the streets. We have given hygiene and food packs, sleeping bags and blankets.
Our health promotion is mobile assessment, screening for diseases and symptoms by taking blood pressure and blood sugar levels. These services will give early identification of conditions of lifestyle diseases such as hypertensions and diabetes.
MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT
We aim to collaborate with mental health institutions & charities where possible in Australia. Read more about our collaborations with St Barts, with whom we undertake health promotions and education, and Swan Care, where we assist residents with their quality of life.
We need your help
FAHWA believe in the power of the individual to make a difference.

OUR RECENT CAUSES
COVID-19 Relief Outreach
FAHWA and partner Health World Pharmaceuticals have teamed up with Canning Vale and Melissa’s Groceries in Western Australia to distribute COVID-19 Relief packs to international students and 457 visa holders that were left vulnerable in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The ‘COVID-19 Relief Care Pack’ is a gender-neutral pack which contains essential hygiene items (e.g hand sanitiser and wipes ), a few kilos of rice, canned goods, pasta, noodles, instant coffee, tea bags and long life milk as immediate aid while they are waiting for monetary relief from their respective employers and universities.
Health World Pharmaceuticals and Organisation
Health World Organisation give back to the community by supporting various local charities in the city of Perth, Melbourne and Sydney community.
