Kobi and Kyan's Story

Ronald McDonald House Adelaide wasn't just about relieving the financial burden

Kobi and Kyan

“When Kyan was born three months early, my mother came with me to Adelaide and we found accommodation in an apartment for a week, before getting into Ronald McDonald House Adelaide. Over the time we stayed at the House, rental accommodation would have cost us over $10,000. But the House isn’t just about relieving the financial burden.

It represents somewhere stable, somewhere safe, somewhere within walking distance of the hospital. It’s a place where volunteers make you emergency meals after you’ve had a terrible day and where you receive support from staff, volunteers and other families who are going through similar experiences. It is very good for your mental health.”
