ANU Med Revue raises $9,000 for refugees and asylum seekers

Friday 22 May 2015

ANU Medical School students have raised $9,000 for refugees and asylum seekers with the success of the ANU Med Revue Into the Wards.

This year more than 50 Medical School students and clinicians were involved in the fairy tale parody of the movie Into the Woods, which ran for three nights at the ANU Arts Centre.

The show was written, produced, directed, choreographed and performed by medical students and for the past nine years has been a sell-out success.

All money raised from the Med Revue will go to the Canberra based not-for profit organisation Companion House.

The producers said that Companion House was chosen because it was part of the local community and the ANU Medical School had links to it with medical students assisting their general practitioners.

The not-for-profit organisation works with adults, young people and children who have sought refuge or asylum in Australia from persecution, torture and war related trauma.

Students were happy to be able to raise money for this great cause.
