Ronald McDonald House Charities Greater Western Sydney
Ronald McDonald House Westmead is built on the simple belief that when a child is seriously ill, nothing should stand in the way of their family being there to support them. The House provides a safe haven, where there’s no need to worry about where they can afford to stay, when and where they will have their next meal, or where they will lay their heads at night.
The House relies on corporate and community support to raise the necessary funds to continue providing a “home away from home” for families who travel hundreds of kilometres, sometimes even interstate, for their child’s vital hospital treatment. The House lets families support each other, and draw comfort from staff, volunteers, and other families.
