Thalidomide Australia Incorporated

Support Network

Thalidomide Australia Incorporated is formed

In March 2008 Lance Fletcher, an Australian Thalidomide survivor, with encouragement from his wife Lesley Fletcher and Ms Kali Wilde, an English Thalidomide Survivor, organised a conference in Sydney Australia, which was attended by survivors and their families from Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Austria & Norway.

Part of the event was to form a support network where Thalidomide Survivors and people with Thalidomide-like deformities could provide information, advice, friendship and emotional support for each other.

So on Saturday the 29th March 2008 with the election of a management committee Thalidomide Australasia Incorporated was officially formed.

In June 2008 Thalidomide Australasia Incorporated was renamed Thalidomide Australia Incorporated
