Many families travel far from home to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children. Often, it can be a long time to be away from home, or to divide a family. For children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having their mum and dad close by for love and support.
The Ronald McDonald House provides accommodation care and support for 20 families every night while their seriously ill children are inpatient or receiving care in Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital.
Projects in 2018
In 2018 we will continue providing services for families of seriously ill children. Since we opened The Ronald McDonald House in November 2004 we have provided accommodation, care and support for in excess of 3,400 families from all over Ireland.
In 2018 we will continue our #Cooking4Families campaign. You, your family, friends and colleagues can make a difference by cooking breakfast, lunch or dinner or having a barbecue for our families who spend their days in hospital with their sick children. A home-cooked meal after a day spent in the hospital is a great treat.
