The National Australian Pharmacy Students' Association (NAPSA) represents the interests of approximately 3500 members whom are undergraduate and postgraduate students studying at eighteen universities across Australia. NAPSA is run by students for students, and strives to provide many opportunities for its members.
One of NAPSA's goals is to spread pharmacy and health awareness through hosting a number of events each year. One of these is the Charity Cup held throughout April and May, where branches compete in raising funds for a selected charity. The Fullife Foundation was honoured to be selected as the charity for 2018 where the students raised over $25,000 as well as packing 6,000 Birthing Kits. The funds raised by the branches for the Charity Cup supported the funding of rebuilding a health post in the rural town of Shurmo in Ethiopia. The health post is the first point of contact for health checks for the community with a large focus on maternal and child wellbeing.
