Medicines Australia makes $100,000 donation to Bushfire Appeal Fund

Medicines Australia today made a cash contribution of $100,000 to the 2009 Victorian Bushfire Appeal Fund to support those affected by the weekend’s bushfires.

Chief Executive Ian Chalmers extended his deepest sympathy, on behalf of the innovative pharmaceuticals industry, to those who had lost loved ones in the bushfires.

“Like all Australians, leaders of our industry were deeply distressed as this terrible disaster unfolded over the weekend,” Mr Chalmers said.

“This is an awful experience for everyone who has been affected personally by the bushfires.

“Our thoughts and sympathy go out to all who are suffering in the wake of this devastating national tragedy, particularly those who have lost friends or family members.”
