Storm International Partnership

Storm International to donate $1,000 to the Charlie Teo Foundation from every new cleaning contract.

We are proud to announce our new corporate partnership with Storm International, Australia’s leading bespoke commercial cleaning company. For every new cleaning contract won, Storm International will donate $1,000 to the Charlie Teo Foundation to fund brain cancer research.

Storm International was founded over 20 years ago by renowned SBS journalist, Wilson Younan OAM. Away from his time at SBS, Wilson grew Storm International from a 2-person cleaning business to the national business it is today that employs hundreds of people.

Wilson Younan sadly passed away in 2020 after a battle with brain cancer. This is why Storm International and the Charlie Teo Foundation have come together in the quest to find a cure for brain cancer.

Wilson’s daughter, Maria Younan, is the General Manager of Storm International. “Our first meeting with Charlie gave us hope and answers that we were looking for. Most importantly he was able to deliver what he promised and gave my father a real fighting chance. No other neurosurgeon did that for us. Charlie is a miracle worker and in a class of his own, from beginning to end he and his team went over and beyond our expectations. Our partnership with the Charlie Teo Foundation gives us the opportunity to share our father’s story with our clients and our community”, said Maria.

“We are privileged to partner with Storm International and have so much respect for this incredible business. The team has come up with a novel way to give back to charity, and at the same time honour the spirit and values of their founder,” said Alana Phadke, CEO of the Charlie Teo Foundation.

“Storm International’s new clients will be helping to change the game when it comes to research into treating brain cancer,” Alana concluded.
