About Us

Uruguayos Unidos is a charity organisation established in 1989. It is officially recognised by the Australian Government. The main purpose of the charity is to help medical institutions in Uruguay and Australia. Also in cases of natural disasters, Uruguayos Unidos can and has provided medical equipment as well as organise fundraisers and provide resources to the particular event.

The funding of the organisation is sourced from member's annual and / or monthly contributions, donations, charity events and fundraiser as well as raffles. All the funds are used to cover our day to day expenses such as rent, electricity, phone, stationary etc. Also this money is used to cover the costs of the shipping of the equipment to those in need in Uruguay and Australia. From the very beginning of the organistion, it is mantained and run by volunteers

A core principle of our organisation is to remain independant of any political group and without any religious link. We strongly believe that the world is only one and in the good will of its inhabitants and that helping those in need is the duty of the people who can make a difference.
