‘Menstrual poverty’ comes in many forms, primarily poor education on menstruation due to financial constraints and a lack of access to necessary sanitary products, waste management systems and hand washing facilities. It is a global problem affecting millions of women worldwide. One survey of 2000 women aged between 18 and 55 found that nearly half…

Pherrus Financial understands the importance of giving back and supporting communities in need. Our team of dedicated staff and volunteers provide support to children in need, both in Fiji and here at home. In 2017, thanks to your contributions one of our charitable teams, located in Fiji, was able to deliver Christmas to the Dilkusha…

When businesses give to charity, they boost the economic health of the community in which they reside. That, in turn, creates a better atmosphere in which to do business. Giving to charity, for most Australian businesses, is a win-win situation. Here’s a look at how giving to charity can benefit a company and the community…

At Pherrus, we firmly believe that every business regardless of size should dedicate resources in order to provide assistance and bring cheer to the needy. If we as organisations band together to accomplish this, the potential for great and positive change is enormous.

Through hard work, dedication, and a team of expert staff, Pherrus has become one of the leading financial services companies in Sydney. Sometimes it’s good to give back to the community, though. Thanks to our success, we’re happily in a position where we can use our resources to help others. Recently, we’ve given to a variety of causes that mean something to us; including Cancer Council Australia, Westmead Children’s Hospital, and Sydney City Children’s Hospital. However, it’s not just the children of Australia who need assistance. We’ve also reached out to children in Fiji, with donations that have been kindly received. 

Not everyone in the world is as fortunate as us, and it’s important that we remember to help people in need around the world, if we have the means to. The Pherrus Foundation was set up with this aim in mind, and this is the vessel through which the accountant Sydney team here at Pherrus Financial Services donates to a variety of causes we feel are worthy. Managing Partner Kris Prasad aims to create a cycle of giving; and with these donations we hope that others will also contribute, and help improve people’s lives.

The most recent of these donations was to Suva Orphanages in Fiji, as part of our ‘Santa to Suva’ initiative, and amounted to five thousand dollars plus additional goods and clothes that were gratefully received in time for Christmas. We hope that this will prove to be invaluable in improving the welfare and wellbeing of these individuals. Through this donation, vulnerable children in Suva will be given access to a safe and secure location, and be protected from poverty, violence, and abuse, as well as enjoying a particularly special holiday celebration.

Aid is desperately needed in Suva, as well as the rest of Fiji. Over 250 000 people on the island live in poverty, while youth unemployment and health care concerns are also a particular problem. While the island might be seen as a luxurious getaway, once you dig down a little deeper you’ll realise that there are many things that need to be addressed.

Monetary donations aren’t the only way Pherrus seeks to give back. The foundation has also sent clothing and other goods to the children at the end of each financial and calendar year. While we might take for granted the gifts we receive at Christmas, it means so much more to people who aren’t used to such things, and will appreciate them so much more. Sharing gifts at the orphanage can help to remind the children that they don’t have to deal with things alone, and that people all over the world care about them.

Overall, while this is an issue that is close to Kris’s heart, all of the team at Pherrus are encouraged to help if they’d like to. If we want to improve society then it’s of paramount importance that those who have the ability to help do so; to improve the lives of others who don’t have the means to do so for themselves.

Do you constantly wake up with itchy eyes, a runny nose, rashes on your skin, breathing problems, or various other symptoms that you can’t explain? In this day and age, the cause of this is likely to be simple allergies. Over 7.8 million children are currently living with respiratory allergies, and this number is ever…

It is very hard to find successful organisations that have not in one way or the other given back to society or spread their good fortune about. Every business, small or big, should dedicate resources to bring some good cheer to the needy in an authentic way. If each company dedicated resources or time to…
