Legacy was formed in Australia
almost 90 years ago to assist the
families of those who had either lost

also has an international outreach,
regularly sending surgical training
teams to Indonesia, Malaysia, China
and other parts of Asia.
ACFU’s international work creates
considerable regional goodwill and
often generates keen media interest.

impression that overseas patients
