HOME AWAY FROM HOME

Holiday with Kids - - In Touch -

We all know the sup­port of your fam­ily is truly the best medicine, yet many fam­i­lies travel far from home to re­ceive treat­ment for their ill or in­jured chil­dren. Now op­er­at­ing in over 42 coun­tries, Ron­ald McDon­ald House Char­i­ties Aus­tralia has be­come a home away from home for peo­ple the world over so they can stay close to their lit­tle loved ones. The Houses are built around the idea that noth­ing else should be on the minds of stressed par­ents but the health of their child – such as where to stay or where their next meal is com­ing from. Since open­ing in 1981, Aus­tralia’s 16 Ron­ald McDon­ald Houses and 15 fam­ily rooms have pro­vided a wel­com­ing haven to more than 68,000 fam­i­lies. www.rmhc.org.au/do­nate
