I hope you and your family are coping as COVID-19 turns our lives upside down. Please know the Musculoskeletal Australia (MSK) team and I are here for you if we can be of any help.

As you can imagine, the impact of the virus has increased the need for our services now, more than ever. The people most vulnerable to COVID-19 are those in our community who are aged, have compromised immune systems, live with musculoskeletal conditions or other disability.

Now more than ever, I’m asking for your support to help them get through this especially tough time. Your donation will ensure our free services are available to those who need it most.

I know these are very strange times and I understand if your circumstances have changed as a result. However, if you are in a position to give, it would help enormously.

Your gift would mean:
You are providing answers to people feeling confused and afraid for their health.
Our national telehealth service, the MSK Help Line, is staffed by highly qualified, clinically trained nurses who are ready to listen with empathy and answer questions with evidence-based, relevant, and timely information.

You are providing comfort to people alone and anxious during isolation.
Your support of the MSK Help Line not only helps our community to deal with the usual questions about musculoskeletal conditions, but you’re also helping with the feelings of anxiety and loneliness that come with the effects of social isolation.

The MSK Help Line is a free service to make sure it’s available to anyone who needs it and is only possible with the vital support of people like you.

MSK is a cause close to everybody and I’m so grateful to have supporters like you to call on during times like this. I know, like all of us here at MSK, you care about keeping our community safe.

Please donate by 30 June to ensure vulnerable people can access the free MSK Help Line for support when they need it most.

I deeply appreciate you standing with us during this difficult time and together with your help, we can continue to help those who need us most.

CEO Musculoskeletal Australia
