Help us change the outcome for babies born with the life-threatening birth condition, Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH). CDH Australia is a national charity supporting families affected by CDH. Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia means being born with a hole in the diaphragm. This rare and complicated birth condition has a survival rate of 50%. On average, two families per week will receive a CDH diagnosis for their child which can affect any pregnancy and has no known cause or cure. We work to improve the lives of those affected by funding research, raising awareness, and helping families navigate their own CDH journey. We facilitate a peer support network, connect families with appropriate services and provide accurate, medically reviewed information about CDH. Over the past few years, we have funded two research projects which have helped improve the treatment options and outcomes for babies born with CDH. We are currently working on a third research project. Our charity is led by volunteers located all over Australia, many of whom have been directly affected by CDH. Our volunteers are hands-on and actively involved in the direction and operation of our organisation. Our volunteers enjoy the flexibility of working from home at times that suit their schedule. Our organisation is small, but our service offering is large. Our Vision is for no family to face CDH alone. Can you help? Learn more:
