We wish you and your families a wonderful festive season. At this time of giving, we would love to share a story with you about Ronald McDonald House Charities. Our giving program with RMHC in Adelaide during 2018 supported the upgrade of a room that has since accommodated dozens of families from remote parts of the state while their seriously ill children receive vital medical treatment. RMH Charities across Australia open their doors year-round to help families in need, including for baby Kyan:
How RMHC Lifted a Mother’s Burden:
Baby Kyan weighed a tiny 1.5kg when he was born 3 months early more than 600 kms from Adelaide in Tumby Bay Hospital. Requiring emergency evacuation, the RFDS immediately airlifted Kyan to the Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Adelaide. While coping with Kyan’s fight for survival, his mum Kobi also faced the financial and emotional burden of living away from home for months while he was cared for. Kobi was moved to tears of relief when Ronald McDonald House offered her a comfortable room and supportive environment close to the hospital while Kyan gradually grew stronger. Now enjoying a healthy, happy son, Kobi remains “forever grateful” that RMH could provide her with a safe, stable and supportive “home away from home”.
