Westmead, NSW

"Being sent 7 hours away from home with 5 children aged 10 down to 5 months, we were lost until someone from the House came and saw us in the hospital. We would never every be able to thank Ronald McDonald House enough for what they did for us during our child's illness"

The House is a 'home away from home' for families from country and regional areas whose children are being treated at the Children's Hospital at Westmead.

Staff and volunteers ensure that families are given the support and homely environment they need at what is an extremely difficult time in their lives. Having a sick child effects that entire family and the House provides an opportunity for a family to live together while still be near to hospital treatment.

Ronald McDonald House, Westmead relies heavily on support from their communities and all donations are very gratefully accepted.
